2 degrees of Fear and Desire is theatre without a play – just us and our fears, desires, and challenges facing global warming. Facilitated, or joked, by Headlines Theatre’s David Diamond, the audience is invited to use theatre techniques to delve deep into their community’s and their own experiences, to turn the spotlight away from the spectacle of environmental devastation and shine it in the mirror.
“Thank you so much for this evening on climate change. I left with a feeling of hope that I haven't had for some time now. It is precisely this kind of courageous self-exploration and community-building that needs to happen in order to effect real change on this most complex and global of issues.”
- Marian Rose, audience member, 2 degrees of Fear and Desire event in November 2007
“Experiencing 2º of Fear and Desire was so refreshing because it went straight to the source, the human psyche, and examined it with honesty, respect, and witty humour… The show helped each of us understand our mental processes a bit better, and develop a sort of solidarity with each other in recognizing and processing through our common struggles. Thank you so much for the wonderfully deep work you have done.”
– Elisa Lee, audience member, 2 degrees of Fear and Desire event in November 2007
