The capacity of the planet to fulfill our material desires is being rapidly depleted, particularly in Australia, and we are concerned to think through a particularly Australian response – a wave of eucalypt breaking over our cities and towns, tarmac cracks and blisters and the mallee begins its long march back over abandoned farmland. How are we to process this? Will we go mad? Or can we develop new myths and philosophies which complement the sour taste of sap? Eucapocalypts Now is a poetry performance which prises open the eyes to an increasingly likely future that’s neither utopia nor apocalypse, and asks – can you face it without flinching?
