A palindromic call to action

Acclaimed Belgian theatre innovators Ontroerend Goed return to Sydney Festival with a captivating call to action that stands at the point where visual art, theatre, poetry and political protest meet.

Read the title. Now read it back-to-front. Are we not drawn onward to new erA reflects the this-way/that-way tensions of a world that seems to be racing forwards and hurtling backwards in the same moment. In our insatiable quest for progress, we have dramatically changed the planet we live on. Are our actions irreversible or can they be undone?

From the makers of the powerful World Without Us (Sydney Festival 2018), this jaw-dropping production is us at our critical moment: a world poised on the brink, a species at the crossroads of its own survival.

More than the title is palindromic in this unique piece of theatre. The innovative Are we not drawn onward to new erA won the 2019 de Fringe First Award and was nominated for the Total Theatre Award in Edinburgh.
