Theatre Three Collaborative
Written by Karen Malpede
Heralded as “brilliant” and “important” in performances in French and English in Paris during COP21. Extreme Whether, in the new genre of cli-fi (climate fiction), is a fierce exposé of politically motivated censorship and a look at the courage it takes to keep up the fight for truth against immensely powerful forces. It is, equally, a love story: of people for nature, a girl for a deformed frog, two embattled climate scientists for truth and one another, and an old man, Uncle, for the world he is about to leave. Inspired by crusading climate scientist, James Hansen, and arctic ice scientist Jennifer Francis, and praised by both. Extreme Whether asks how can we act to save ourselves from catastrophic climate change, and what are the nefarious forces acting against our survival?
