CALIBAN explores the battle ground of global climate politics through the eyes of those on the front lines.

Set in a not-too-distant future on the brink of climate disaster, CALIBAN starts where Shakespeare’s The Tempest left off – when the island is submerged in the rising tides, how will Caliban survive?

CALIBAN is an Australian re-imagining of The Tempest where Ferdinand is an oil baron, Prospera a scientist and Ariel is an artificial intelligence system with the power to save the world.

A new culturally diverse work made in Melbourne’s western suburbs, CALIBAN turns the climate debate on its head and gives a voice to characters from Africa, Afghanistan and the Pacific Islands – areas deeply affected by climate change. 

“an adaptation that wreaks perfect havoc on its source text, layering the urgency of climate change into its plot and characters.” –  Theatrepeople

“Western Edge Youth Arts have done and continue to do remarkable work but the real accolades go to the Edge Ensemble for a clever thought-evoking message.” –  ArtsHub

“spirited, vibrant and painfully accurate” – Theatre Press

“Caliban is pertinent worthwhile theatre… Go Western Edge!” – Stage Whispers
