From the acclaimed dance theatre company Force Majeure and director Danielle Micich comes a provoking work created in extraordinary times.  

Inspired by the music and themes of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, this world premiere production explores ageing, environmental destruction, speculative paths to human survival, and asks: ‘How did we get here? What have we built? How can we continue?’ 

With original text by Tom Wright and music by Kelly Ryall, The Last Season brings together Australian stage icons Paul Capsis and Pamela Rabe, the powerhouse Irish actor Olwen Fouéré, and an ensemble of 13 young performers in a vibrant intergenerational conversation.  

At this critical time in human history, Force Majeure continues its commitment to making work exploring and questioning contemporary culture.
