About 12

12 is a new theatre creation that gives voice to youth with regards to the Climate Crisis and the future they have inherited. The text is built from writings/conversations with 10 Ottawa teens, interviews they had with family/friends and people they met, actual text from COP24 in Poland, and words spoken by global youth activists such as Boyan Slat, Greta Thunberg, and the Australian high school kids who were told to be "less activist." 12 is not a teen rant. It dares to ask questions, including to each other, of what it actually means to take action at the 11th hour.
