He is interested in how art practices can bring a positive and empowering message about climate to audiences. Where’s My Igloo Gone? for children aged 5+ and families, will tour in Autumn 2017 – Spring 2018, accompanied by a new, interactive installation that turns environmental data into a creative, participatory artwork.

The Bone Ensemble will be touring its very well received family theatre show Where’s My Igloo Gone? (ages 5+) nationally from November to April (directed by Adam Ledger). This colourful, participatory performance explores environmental themes of climate and community, and seeks to inspire and empower its audiences as we follow Oolik’s journey to find out what has happened to her home and what she – and you! – can do about it!
