Spoken word artists Chris White, Liv Torc, Peter Bearder and Shagufta K Iqbal are joined by musicians Hal Kelly and Pete Yelding, for this extraordinary performance which inspires a cultural revival on climate activism. Weaving together work commissioned during the 2020 lockdown, the show is a poetic and musical exploration on themes of climate change in the time of Covid-19.

Through poetry, humour, music and storytelling, these exceptional artists explore their own creative perspectives on this global challenge, each bringing a fresh and exciting offering.

In a show that is both vital and timely, expect diverse moments of joy, activism, shock, hope and community spirit, all wrapped up in a lively and moving performance experience. A work in progress and never performed in public before, be the first to see SIRENS with this limited-capacity first time showing.

Commissioned by Cape Farewell, supported by the Cultural Recovery Fund with in-kind support from the Wardrobe Theatre.
