This Melbourne Festival Is Tackling Climate Change Through Art, Film And Performance

Posted by Beat Magazine on 27/6/16.

Hot!Hot!Hot! is a new arts festival addressing climate change through film, sound, theatre and live art, all taking place in the reclaimed setting of a 1960s school ground.

Hot!Hot!Hot! aims to inspire new concepts, new forms and new works about climate change as a cultural response to corporate and governmental inaction.

Program highlights include a night of 25 short plays from 25 of the best writers in TWENTYFIVExONE, while Brisbane’s Kristian Fletcher will introduce B Movies Live ‘Frankenstein Meets The Space Monster’ celebrating all things trashy and camp. Luke Devine will present his new Britney Spears inspired show Work Bitch, with Crack Theatre Festival director Jane Grimley showcasing her 7 in Paradise show – a one-on-one seven minute performance taking place in an elevator.

Hot!Hot!Hot! Festival will be sizzling in SiteWorks on 33 Saxon Street Brunswick from Wednesday June 29 to Saturday July 9.
