Slow burn

Produced by Q Theatre in association with Sydney Festival 2022

Every year more and more people experience the impacts of bushfire devastation. This is the story of one such family who lost their home during the 2003 Canberra bushfires.

Nineteen years on they still remember, they can’t forget, but they can carry on. With wry wit, compelling storytelling and song, Deborah Pollard conjures into being a theatrical portrait of the very human face of climate change catastrophe.

This new work tracks the silent legacy of extreme weather events long after the news crews have moved on. Part stand-up, part home movie night, part gritty realism, this dynamic one-woman show presents an hour of intimate, raw and bitingly honest performance.
