Over the past 40 years, there have been more frequent extreme weather events than ever before in human history. Up until 40 years ago, hurricanes were only given female names. Hurricanes with female names kill more people than hurricanes with male names because people don’t prepare for them as thoroughly.
Using a green screen, this piece explores our complicated relationship to weather. Each performance, a different local stand-in takes on the central role in a curious and hopeful show that draws a line between ancient weather gods and our present-day climate crisis.
Please note this event takes place off-site at King’s Hall 41A South Clerk Street, Edinburgh EH8 9NZ.
