With three previous SELL OUT shows already this year, during International Women's Day, National Reconciliation Week and Refugee Week, this one-off evening will explore climate solutions, action, and what it means to live in a warming world.

Featuring esteemed panellists Professor Rob Adams AM (Director City Design and Projects, City of Melbourne), Lucy Best (Communications and Community Engagement Manager at Positive Charge), and Dr Stephen Bygrave (CEO of Beyond Zero Emissions) 'Creating a Climate for Change' will look at how current climate solutions can change our lives and communities in positive ways; not just at a purely environmental level.

The discussion will then be followed by an interactive performance with Melbourne Playback Theatre's ensemble of professional actors, musicians, and MCs. Melbourne Playback offer unique, one-off theatre performances which are created from the audience's stories, experiences, and perspectives. These are brought to life on stage by a skilled team of performers, mediated by a facilitator.

'Creating a Climate For Change' offers an exclusive forum that intersects science, performance and robust conversation. Joining the discussion and speaking to the Melbourne Playback facilitator is completely voluntary and audience members also have the option to simply sit back, and watch. These events have proven to be funny, playful, poignant, and insightful. Melbourne Playback Theatre Company have been captivating audiences for over 30 years with their unique form of improvised theatre; transforming shared, real-life events into powerful and engaging stories on the stage.

"Playback theatre is certainly not your usual black box theatre experience, but if the standing ovation that MPTC received at the end of this provocative performance is anything to go by, it is an incredibly rewarding one." - Theatrepeople (SticksnStones - May, 2016)
