What happens when the unstoppable force of climate change meets the immovable object of Australian federal politics?

As Fleetwood Mac takes the stage at Canberra’s Parliament House, 96 armed eco-terrorists storm the building and take the whole crowd hostage, threatening to execute everyone unless Australia ends global warming. Tonight. Kill Climate Deniers asks the simple question: What would it take to actually stop climate change dead in its tracks?

First written as a play in 2014, Kill Climate Deniers attracted right-wing fury without even being produced. Taking on this second story, it’s evolved into an ebook, a film script, a walking tour of Parliament House and a dance party – and for the Festival of Live Art, a performance-lecture-cum-DJ-set, delivering the explosive, action-heavy journey into climate politics you’ve been waiting for!
