National Theatre of Scotland, Aberdeen Performing Arts and Peacock Visual Arts present: The Fierce Urgency of Now
An evening of food, discussion, and artistic provocations about climate change.
Featuring a curated participatory meal by The Town is the Garden, music from Simon Gall of Clype, and artistic sharings generated through National Theatre of Scotland’s Engine Room initiative One Day to Play.
As part of One Day to Play, six artists from across art forms will be matched into pairs to generate a brand new idea that responds to issues around climate change, and will work together over the course of one day towards presenting ten minutes of their work as part of The Fierce Urgency of Now. The pairs will be facilitated and guided by director and theatre maker Jenna Watt, as well as being assigned a climate change expert or activist to provide them with a provocation and to work with them throughout the day.
Part of Season for Change, a UK-wide programme of cultural responses celebrating the environment and inspiring urgent action on climate change.
6pm – 10pm
All proceeds to Aberdeen Climate Action as part of St Andrew’s Fair Saturday
