Presented by David Finnigan
What happens when the unstoppable force of climate change meets the immoveable object of two-party politics?
Kill Climate Deniers tells the story of an explosive attack on Australia’s Parliament House by a group of eco-terrorists during a Fleetwood Mac concert, and the Environment Minister’s one-woman war to take her country back.
A sharply satirical look at politics that examines what happens when the two-party political system comes face to face with a massive, global-scale crisis unfolding over the span of decades.
The performance is soundtracked with a barrage of classic House and Techno bangers from 1988-92. The result is a high-intensity performance threaded through with blistering political satire and a guns-blazing action adventure set at the heart of Australian democracy.
Kill Climate Deniers began life as a playscript, and has now expanded as a project including an album, a short film and a live show. David Finnigan will present a night that blends theatre, storytelling, electronic music performance and a dancefloor-ready mix of classic tunes.
