Christmas Climate Change Variety Hour

“Carols by Candlelight meets the Apocalypse”


What happens to all our Christmassy fantasies when Santa’s workshop melts into the Arctic Ocean? In order to do anything about Climate Change, someone has to question current Christmas traditions and we think we need more than Christmas ornaments made locally out of recycled milk bottles to do so. But also maybe we still want good food and holidays?

Hosted by Sydney’s most vocally versatile feminist songstresses, Lady Sings it Better, and featuring performances from local artists including Betty Grumble, Tom Hogan, Maria White and Emma McManus, Nathan Harrison, Alana Wesley, Julia Patey and Ellipsis, Christmas Climate Change Variety Hour is a play on carols by candlelight questioning the conceptual and material sustainability of Christmas with singalong, dance, mime, poetry, durational performance and experimental lectures. Presented by Earlwood Farm in association with Verge Gallery and supported by the City of Sydney.

12th December 2015 / 7.30 for sunset start / Verge Gallery – City Road, Camperdown, NSW 2050 / BYO PICNIC (drinks for sale at venue) / Supported by the City of Sydney, Auspicious Arts and Verge Gallery
