On 8 May 2021, a group of science communicators and actors are taking to the stage at the Australian Academy of Science’s heritage listed Shine Dome.

Join a unique interactive theatre performance to experience an intriguing alternate world where science just might save humanity, or destroy it, depending on how it is used. The performance will follow a Forum Theatre format, where the audience’s words shape what will happen on stage.

A co-production of Falling Walls Engage and the Australian Academy of Science, this event is directed by Canberra’s Rebus Theatre, with the participation of Science Engagers—part of the Falling Walls Engage Hub Australia.

If people can’t make it to the Shine Dome, the performance will also be live streamed. We invite those who are located within and outside Australia to participate.

The link to the livestream will be communicated on the Academy’s social media channels prior to the event.

Accessibility: A hearing loop is available. The performance will be Auslan interpreted. Wheelchair seating is limited.

The details

When: Saturday 8 May, 7:00 pm to 9:30 pm
