METIS: Love Letters to a Liveable Future

Date:Wed 21 & Thu 22 July 2021
Price:Pay What You Feel

‘While out there the fiction rages, we are gathering to write ourselves a new reality...' 

We’ve been dreaming our way out of the climate crisis - and now we’ve made a show: watch us spar, flirt, fight, argue, laugh and cry our way towards imagining the world(s) we want to live in.

We don’t have any answers but we can’t sit back and let others keep writing a dystopian future for us: join us in an escapist, fantasy-filled, sometimes meglomaniacal, but defiantly hopeful take on global transformation.  

This live performance is the culmination of a two-year process of ‘research-in-public’ in which METIS’ artistic director Zoë Svendsen and her team have gathered different voices and conversations which have informed different iterations of the project along the way.


If you’d like to contribute to our imagining in advance – book a set of postcards through HOMEMAKERS, and share your dreams with us – you might see them in the show!

We are also on the look out for brilliant alternative projects across the UK and the globe – tweet @metisprojects with the #imaginingotherwise if you have any suggestions.
