Hello You! It’s Us. We’re speaking to you from the distant future...

"We don’t live on land anymore. We live on flood ships now. It’s been like this for hundreds of years… We live in a place called the Southeast Reach. My grandma says it was once a great city, but now - it's all water. We want to tell you about the children, (not us), the ones who saved the world. So get comfy. Get right under the blanket. Put your headphones on, and we’ll start the story."

After the Flood is an immersive audio installation and workshop co-created with children. The project focuses on a story told by a group of children far into the future who tell us about a new life on the water, and the children who helped to save humanity when climate change and rising sea levels threatened cities around the world. The work is about the resilience, courage, and ingenuity of kids. It’s also a love letter to places that we’ve lost and the new ones that we’ve made.

Presented by Sydney Opera House and Triage Live Art Collective

Meet the Artist...

Triage Live Art Collective

Triage was founded by Artistic Director, Katerina Kokkinos-Kennedy. The company has created, presented, and toured more than twenty commissioned works both locally and internationally. Triage creates intimate, immersive and participatory encounters. The audience is always at the centre of the performance. Katerina sees performance as a place to engage with our fears, hopes, and dreams, and as a powerful way to make sense of ourselves and the world around us. In recent works, Triage has explored the topics of death (The Infirmary), gender (I can't believe we're still having this conversation), climate change (After the Flood) and the meaning of place across time (META). After the Flood creative team: Katerina Kokkinos-Kennedy, Zoe Scoglio, Eloise Kent and John Ford.
