From the acclaimed dance theatre company Force Majeure comes a provoking work created in extraordinary times. Inspired by the music and themes of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, this world premiere production explores themes of ageing, environmental destruction, speculative paths to human survival, and asks: ‘How did we get here? What have we built? How can we continue?’ With original text by Tom Wright and music by Kelly Ryall, The Last Season brings together Australian stage icons Paul Capsis and Pamela Rabe, the powerhouse Irish actor Olwen Fouéré, and an ensemble of 13 young performers in a vibrant intergenerational conversation.

Warning – this performance contains herbal cigarettes, loud noise/music, strobe and flashing lights, haze effects, and scenes of a violent nature. Complete lockout – latecomers will not be admitted.
