Ticket Info


The fact that Headlines Theatre’s work is participatory terrified some people, but let me tell you, Headlines’ Artistic Director, David Diamond, works such magic – the theatre he creates is so compelling and often so much flat-out fun – that once you’re actually in the theatre, the pull to get up and take part can be stronger than the tide, more subliminally insistent than the force that guides the Ouija board. – Colin Thomas, Georgia Straight

The debate about whether or not global warming is real is over. The question is, what do we do? Headlines Theatre, acclaimed for creating collaborative theatre that raises awareness about everyday issues, has created a series of grassroots community events on global warming. These public workshops have been given the title 2° of fear and desire – a theatrical inquiry into climate change with no play, no actors and no script. This is really theatre without a net.

Having already had an acclaimed thirteen-event run in Vancouver in 2007, and a very successful event at the 2009 One Yellow Rabbit High Performance Rodeo in Calgary, this innovative company challenges us to creatively investigate these issues in our own lives.
