Scenes from the Climate Era – Digital Download


A mosaic of snapshots capturing how it feels to live through this historical planetary transformation.

At the turn of the 2020s, the climate movement abruptly shifted into a new phase.

Governments and businesses suddenly escalated their climate commitments, while fossil fuel lobbyists swapped out denial for greenwashing tactics.

New activist movements initiated a wave of direct action – property destruction, rent strikes and attacks on fossil fuel infrastructure.

In science journals and academic conferences, radical solutions were debated and tested which would have been unthinkable just a decade ago.

And everywhere, extreme weather and climate impacts hit harder and faster than expected. We’ve already hit major tipping points which have pushed us past a point of no return.

Through a series of vignettes, Scenes from the Climate Era maps the strange and unfamiliar contours of this new world we find ourselves in.

Scenes from the Climate Era was first produced by Belvoir Theatre in 2023.
