(Stockton International Riverside Festival and Shoreditch Festival 2011)
A cheeky interactive outdoor performance exploring and exposing public opinion about climate change – and anything else you want to get off your chest!.
Rantbox captures public opinion and respectfully offers it back to the public. Three roving performers interview passers-by about their attitudes to climate change and the state of the world. Using documentary theatre the performers then ‘rant’ on behalf of their interviewees – the edited interviews playing simultaneously in the actor’s headsets to offer compelling performances.
The local rants are interspersed with famous speeches and crazy dancing. It’s better out than in!
Rantbox has very simple technical requirements and can happen in any public area. Performers need 2 hours in the local area before performance time to conduct interviews.
