Waves: Climate Change Theatre Action Aotearoa

Massey University School of English & Media Studies presents Waves, a provocative afternoon of short plays by international and local playwrights, spoken word poetry, and readings from the entrants in our Expressive Arts Club Climate Change Creative Writing Awards.

Waves is our contribution to Climate Change Theatre Action, a series of worldwide readings and performances coordinated from New York by NoPassport, The Arctic Cycle and Theatre Without Borders.  

Kicking off Climate Change Theatre Action for Aotearoa on Sunday November 1st in the Theatre Laboratory (5D14) at Massey University Wellington Campus. Students and staff from Massey’s theatre studies and expressive arts programmes will entertain, console and confront you with works humorous and intense, problem-illuminating and solution-focussed, powerful, sometimes funny, sometimes catastrophic, often moving and inspirational.

Bring your own lunch and join us from 1pm to 2pm to celebrate to power of creativity to make us think differently and illuminate possibilities for change as well as present deep challenges to our complacency. We’ll provide free coffee, tea, juice, biscuits, entertainment and an unhurried space for thoughtful korero after the performance.  We’ll also be announcing the winners of the Expressive Arts Club Climate Change Creative Writing Competition at the event.  Attendance is free: all welcome.
