From the creators of ‘Kill Climate Deniers’ comes ‘You’re Safe Til 2024’ a six-year project about planetary transformation. Playwright David Finnigan and musician Reuben Ingall are creating six new shows, one each year, from 2019 to 2024. Each show looks at a different aspect of the massive changes taking place on our planet.
The second show in the series, Deep History looks at seven key turning points in the history of humanity – from the Toba Super volcano eruption during the last ice age, which nearly drove humanity extinct, the death of the last Neanderthal, all the way to the first nuclear tests in the 1940s.
That deep time story is placed against the story of an Australian family during the 2020 summer bushfires.
75,000 years of human history is placed against 75 hours of escalating danger over new year’s eve on the south coast of New South Wales.
How has our history led us to this moment of crisis? And where do we go from here?
