A satirical cabaret revealing why Australia has no effective policies to address dangerous climate change, mass extinction and environment degradation. Digging Deeper is the first live theatre performance produced by ClimActs, a politically strategic, voluntary-run Australian performance collective using striking visual spectacle and satire to communicate the urgent need for the world to respond to grave threats from climate change.

Under the direction of their powerfully effluent CE0² Coral Bleach, ClimActs’ Coal Diggers have made a name for themselves in the media through crashing high level ministerial events of Josh Frydenberg and Greg Hunt, and by "surprising" guests at Gina Rinehart’s gala event (including politicians who tried to sneak past them and police officers hurriedly called to the scene) with their subversive brand of performance art. In their mainstage debut, Digging Deeper, Australia’s peskiest and proudest performance-blockaders will be given a platform to sing, dance, crash, yell and share their thoughts to a (potentially) more recipient audience than the parliamentarians, oligarchs and press that are usually running away from them.

"In the lead up to the federal election, politicians from all persuasions are trying to ensure that the conversations are about boats and other distractions," says Deborah Hart, creator of the production. "We wanted to bring attention back to the gross conflicts of interest behind the scenes and expose those whose self-serving behaviour is ultimately profoundly dangerous, while still being hilarious, informative and entertaining."
