The ocean contains the switch of life. Not land, not the atmosphere. The ocean. And that switch can be turned off.

Timed to coincide with COP26, Westival & Belfast International Arts Festival presents The Theatre Centre’s Sea Sick by Alanna Mitchell. Sea Sick is a critically acclaimed production about climate change, and the state of the global ocean, which has toured Canada and the world. Experience this powerful story in which Mitchell uses science and delicate wit to tell us about her journey to the bottom of the ocean, the demons she discovered there, and her hope for the future.

Mitchell is an award-winning Canadian journalist and author (New York Times, CBC’s Quirks & Quarks, Globe and Mail, and more) who writes about science and social trends specialising in investigative reporting. Sea Sick is inspired by her international bestseller and award-winning book of the same name.

Part of IN-visible ID-entities 3, an on-going BIAF initiative encouraging cultural collaboration across the island and supported by the Government of Ireland’s Department of Foreign Affairs.
