Starring Ayesha Tansey as Fleur and featuring a digital ensemble of actors and voices, audiences are invited to join Fleur for a story, a tour of her pot plants and a tasty curry to eat as they leave. This innovative digital/theatre hybrid is brought to life by one of the best young contemporary performance creative teams in Australia; Cassandra Fumi and Justin Gardam.

Rebel brings to life stories from environmentalists from Springbrook who got the government to protect cow paddocks as a “Rainforest in Recovery”, the head of The Grandparents of the Extinction Rebellion in WA and members of Knitting Nannas Against Gas and Greed from New South Wales. Audiences can expect verbatim theatre, made with the greatest love, respect and gratitude to those who are fighting for our future.
