This project is built around the premise that 'mother earth has stopped breathing', resulting in a 'phone call to the world'. Groups of young people from three continents are engaging with climate change issues that impact them at a local level, coming together to consider the wider global climate challenge. They are creating digital performance work that will inform, question, confront and make demands of its multiple audiences to make a difference to one of the most pressing issues of our time.
