This time-travel event will see your future children journey back from the year 2030, to deliver an urgent message about the future.

In October 2018, the UN warned that we have 12 years to limit climate change catastrophe. When that year comes, 2030, the dancers in this piece will be 30 years old, and they will either have a future, or they won’t.

This is not a performance, by performers. This is not theatre. You are not the audience. This is a plea – and these are your future children.

The Rebellion is presented as part of a full activity day:

• 1000-1200: Workshop for devising activist choreographic work
• 1800-1830: Performance of The Rebellion
• 1830-1930: Imagination Café: audiences are invited to imagine what a sustainable world could look like

The results of the Imagination Café will be returned to the community in a creative format.
