“A highly probable, high-impact threat: something we ought to see coming, like a two-tonne rhinoceros aiming its horn in our direction and preparing to charge.” – Michele Wucker, Grey Rhino

From climate change, to mass extinction events, to the effects of our widening wealth gap, Grey Rhinos are all around us, threatening carnage. A collaboration between award winning choreographers Charmene Yap and Cass Mortimer Eipper, Grey Rhino is an audacious new dance epic which warns us to heed the dangers hidden in plain sight.

Produced by Performing Lines, Grey Rhino is a high-energy combination of dance, music and spoken word that asks questions about apathy, denial and avoidance. It’s an urgent creative statement delivered with high impact – you won’t be leaving your seat unmoved.
