Extinction Rebellion

The threat to our planet from climate change is so extreme and urgent that there is no time to lose. It’s time to act, now!

On 15th April Extinction Rebellion are taking over the streets of central London in a huge day of action to demand action on climate. This action is International Rebellion. And we are calling on actors and theatremakers, dancers and street performers to come and join us and make this day of protest the biggest and most joyful street festival ever.

We need:
• actors and drama school students of all ages and experience to perform multiple versions of a monologue ‘We Hear Bird Song’ by April de Angelis across London.
• small companies to come together and perform multiple versions of April’s new mystery play Noah’s Flood too.
• actors and performers to overwhelm us with their own brilliant ideas for street performances that unite us all in the call for climate change.
• ideas and actors for invisible theatre.

Director Anna Birch and others will be running workshops on street theatre in central London on 9th and 11th April.

So if you want to join us in the Performers’ Rebellion, get in touch with us now on

Your planet needs you!
