Background


Rising Tides is a collective formed of experienced and emerging artists, with the aim to contribute to wider artistic engagement with climate change.


We aim to advance the understanding of climate change through the delivery of new professional theatre productions and theatre events for the benefit of the public.


Rising-Tides produced a 'takeover' as part of the HighTide Festival.


Rising Tides premiered no fewer than five new productions, Two Fish and Fractured both by Steve Casey, Limpets by Jonnie Bayfield, Think Tank devised by Chris Lawson & Paul Webster, Fridge by Polly Churchill.


As a result of this successful residency Rising Tides was awarded Arts Council Funding to research and develop Fridge and Two Fish with the support of the Arcola Theatre.


Synopsis


Daniel is one f****d-up, neurotic climatologist.


Well, he's really no more or less f****d-up than you. Or I.


But studying climatology will do that to you, given the dark shadows that science has cast over our oblivion.


Now Daniel has a choice.


Knowing how the future looks, can he bring a child into a world at the mercy of cataclysmic changes in climate?


Ian Meadow's Between Two Waves is a vital piece of new writing about one of the greatest challenges facing humanity.


Originally performed in Sydney, Australia this UK premiere is a touching, funny and moving love story that taps into our anxieties for the future and the moral dilemma of bringing up a family in the face of climate change.
