In Brian and Jackie’s 100 Neoliberal Climate Change Crusade Plays to Conquer the Malaise of Your Fears to do Anything in the Age of Climate Change, Jackie and Brian compete against the inevitability of time to tell the story about what they believe to be the unavoidable end. As self-important artists (and climate change activists), they’ve set out to make great art that will change the world. This work is an excerpt of the full length performance currently in development.

Re:Current Theatre is a Vancouver/Toronto-based award-winning company creating performance that reimagines gathering. We have presented our work at festivals locally and nationally. We presented the sold-out SummerWorks hit ‘The Smile Off Your Face’ and most recently the digital tour of ‘New Societies Online’ from Upintheair Theatre’s eVolver Festival to Kingston’s Kick & Push Festival and into Crow’s Theatre’s main season programming. Our work has been featured on “Best of the Year” lists, received Outstanding Direction (NOW Magazine), Best Production (SummerWorks 2017), nomination for Outstanding Direction (MyEntertainmentWorld). We are a deeply human collective engaged in questions that spark connection between strangers. We create one of a kind experiences that redefine what we think of as theatre. At times our work will be on a stage, though it’ll just as often take place in unconventional settings, on gameboards, in studios and over dinner tables. We use a multiplicity of materials and methods that tease the senses to create an intimate space of unpredictable wonder.
