By The Edge Enemble

WHERE DO THE SPIRITS GO WHEN THE WATER RISES?

Caliban’s island is sinking. Ariel is an artificial intelligence system with the power to save the world. As tensions rise with the tides, who will survive?

Exploring the battle ground of global climate politics through the eyes of those on the front lines, this brand new Australian work floats fragments of stories from South Sudan, Afghanistan, and the Pacific Islands on a wave of dynamic energy that’s heading your way.

Ethnic diversity on our stages should reflect that on our streets, and it’s great to see a show embracing it as the most natural thing in the world.
