Doing Nothing is Not an Option was a three day event held at Warwick Arts Centre. It was aimed at artists with an interest in climate change and focused on the role performing arts has in communicating and exploring its ramifications.
It energised, re-energised, inspired and offered an opportunity for people in the performing arts sector to reflect on what the subject means for artists today and in the future. Exclusively targeted at the performing arts, this gathering saw writers, directors, producers and climate specialists of all types come together to shape new ideas and develop a platform for creative responses and new work. This took place in the context of a public festival of climate related performance work.
Across the three days participants had the opportunity to see three shows including Motionhouse’s Broken Random, Scream’s 7 Promises and Jonny & The Baptists.
Doing Nothing is Not an Option was also a launch pad for a round of commissions in partnership with producing venues across the country.
