On the last iceberg the last polar bear drifts on the ocean, singing in heartfelt remembrance of a world he once knew that has been devastated by climate change. At first he castigates humans for their greed, but then as the iceberg shrinks beneath him he begins his beautiful lament to a world now utterly transformed.
A new original piece that, through the character of this solitary polar bear, speaks of the devastating effect we are having on our glorious planet. Written by composer and lyricist Patrick Dineen and performed by David Pisaro. Costume design by Rosalind Henderson. Lighting by Phil Saunders.?
