Exploring sea level rises in the Pacific and its effect on family, food and memory

In association with Marrickville Council

This transitional performance piece from The Living Room Theatre weaves across bushlands , with a narrative exploring sea level rises in the Pacific and the impact these rises will have on family, food and memory. You are left to your own devices – choosing what you wish to see, hear, feel and touch.

Inspired by the Honours Thesis undertaken by Luke Craven, They come for them at night will create an insight into the fragility of our own safety and the humanity we find in times of great threat. Luke Craven’s research will meet sound an image and the work will be performed by young girls in an effort to truly understand the vulnerability of humans as we face climate change.

The Living Room Theatre hopes to contribute to a larger conversation between artists, creatives, industry and academia about the plight of the earth and its peoples. The textures explored in They come for them at night are part of the diverse fabric of art in Australia.
