On the weekend of the 2020 summer solstice we shared a first look at two short digital pieces from MELT, our latest environmental epic in response to the climate crisis. Created So Kind and Are We Good were sparked during the virtual R&D we’ve been undertaking with 200 young people from around the UK over the last month for MELT

MELT is a two-year environmental epic from the National Youth Theatre in response to the Climate Crisis featuring an initial cast of 200, in partnership with the University of Hull. 

Are We Good? explores our guilt, shame and fear in relationship to our participation in the climate crisis. As consumerism, colonialism and extractivism continue to harm people and the planet we explore how this relates to Summer solstice celebrations that are inspired by nature, social equality and positive change. ‘Are We Good?’ uses VR, song, poetry, video and performance in an eclectic digital mix.

Created So Kind features spoken word, song and recorded footage created from all around the British Isles. As the piece finishes, a livestream will begin. #NYTMELT
