Laura Bowler addresses the climate emergency in ways that are both deadly serious and playfully engaging.
In her award-winning piece, Wicked Problems, Bowler sings words from writer Timothy Morton’s Dark Ecology. We’re now awake to the crisis, but the irony is that we’ve woken up to find we’re "holding a smoking gun".
For her music theatre work, Houses Slide, for soprano Jessica Aszodi and the London Sinfonietta, Bowler creates a story starting from the question many of us ask ourselves: how can we stop being overwhelmed by the enormity of the challenge and start taking positive action?
Acclaimed theatre director Katie Mitchell directs the performance, which is powered by bicycles.
