Join William and the 8 Broke Students team in the wonderful soundscape of 'Love Out of the Ruins', a collaboratively scripted Climate Change Theatre Action play by Zoë Svendsen. Zoë directs the UK performing arts company Metis Project, making participatory performances exploring contemporary political subjects. We chose this play because of its hopeful vision for the future, and the ability it gave us to craft a 'great turnaround' narrative specifically for Aotearoa.
