Canberra Youth Theatre presents Collapse

Collapse is a new work that speaks to a concern that impacts us all – how we act when we are on the brink of collapse.

Through the personal experiences of six young people in Canberra, Collapse explores the factors that have contributed to the destruction of civilisations past and the challenges that threaten our society today.

What will be the final tipping point? Nuclear warfare. Over-population. Ecological degradation. Poor leadership.

How do we respond when everything feels like it is spiralling out of control, and can we prevent it from falling apart?

Created by The Company Ensemble, directed by Artistic Director Luke Rogers, in collaboration with dance theatre specialist Chenoeh Miller and playwright Grace De Morgan.

The collapse of our civilisation is not inevitable. History suggests it is likely, but we have the unique advantage of being able to learn from the wreckages of societies past.” – Luke Kemp

The Company Ensemble is CYT’s training program for emerging artists aged 18 – 25 years.
