Raging at the fault lines in the national response to the ‘Black Summer’ bushfires of 2019-20, Unprecedented by Campion Decent advances the conversation on Australia’s relationship to fire with incisive humour and powerful tenderness.
Meticulously researched and drawing on numerous sources, Unprecedented takes the pulse of the nation against a growing backdrop of political short-termism and a polarising media landscape.
Part verbatim, part history, and part polemic; Unprecedented poses urgent questions about our collective response to a devastating new scale of environmental disaster, and our capacity for resilience in the face of a growing climate emergency.
Unprecedented was first produced by HotHouse Theatre, premiering at the Butter Factory Theatre, Wodonga, 10 August, 2023.
