Warning: Climate change is just getting warmed up.

Artists from Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia come together in a meditation on Indigeneity and humanity’s frailty in the face of our own actions. In a burnt landscape, climate change refugees revisit conflict with mining companies, the destruction of fauna and the relegation of the marginalized. Breath-taking and electric, this show will give you hope for our planet and a deeper connection with humankind.

This multi-disciplinary work from Australia’s Marrugeku is based on the poems written and spoken by Edwin Lee Mulligan. It includes Indigenous songs by the cast as well as original songs and covers of Nick Cave, sung live by Ngaiire.

Marrugeku is supported by the Australia Council for the Arts and the Western Australian Government through the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries. Cut The Sky has been commissioned by Theater im Pfalzbau Ludwigshafen (Germany); Carriageworks (Australia); Koninklijke Vlaamse Schouwburg – KVS (Belgium); Les Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg (Luxembourg); Centre Culturel Tjibaou Nouméa (New Caledonia).
