WHAT?¿WHAT?¿WHAT? is the HOT! HOT! HOT! Climate Arts Festival? It's a contemporary, climate-responsive, performance and art festival that is presented by MKA: Theatre of New Writing, a not-for-profit charity, and proudly funded by Creative Victoria.

Supported by a cast of collaborators like the International Academic Conference, Performance Studies International and Moreland City Council, this festival brings you a synthesis of the diverse from the extreme to the experimental and more, that'll blow your mind. It'll fire up brand new concepts, new forms and new works. It'll put to the torch the paradigm that climate change is the concern of policy makers, politicians, and big business!

WHEN?¿WHEN?¿WHEN? The launch of this festival, right here in Melbourne is from 29 June to 9 July 2016. Check the website for more details of the shows, the line-up, tickets, pricing, freebies etc.

WHAT?¿WHAT?¿WHAT? to expect?

Fear The Sun - Wed 29 – Sat 9 Jul - FREE
An installation work by Sandra Fiona Long. An extravagant display of power that involves heaters, in the wake of empty promises, broken agreements and corporate green-washing. You're invited to take off your shoes and do nothing but warm yourself and listen.
TWENTYFIVExONE - Wed 29th Jun at 7:30pm (120mins), TIX: $10/$15.
An offer of 25 plays by 25 of the best Australian writers. A diversity of voices that are terrifying, daunting and apocalypscising. No play is longer than a song, short and sharp like a violent track, to indulgent, strung out, epic psychedelic stoner metal sagas of 6 min 66 seconds recurring.
7 In Paradise - Thu 30 Jun Fri 1 Jul (7mins plus per showing) COST: Optional.
One day, everyone will get their 15 mins of fame and 7 mins in paradise. Just don't forget the tipping point as some things just can't be undone.

Doppelgangster's Titanic - Thu 30 Jun, Fri 01, Thu 07, Fri 08 Jul, 9pm to 10.15pm (75 mins) TIX $12/$15 - show is outdoors.
Doppengangster's Titanic is staged entirely from a shipping container, it's about educated guesses, operational matters and the impossible pursuit of truth.
B Movies Live - Frankenstein meets the Space Monster - Fri 1st & Sat 2nd Jul, 7:00pm-8:30pm (90mins). TIX: $12/$15
Spend 90 chaotic minutes where scripts fly when DIY trashbags bring the 60s B-grade movie to life with rubbish props, costumes, special FX, terror, fallen pieces of popcorn, and then destroy it all over again.
The Party Party (Election Party) - Sat 2 Jul, 6pm to 11pm (includes B-Movies Live). TIX $Free or $12/15 if you want to see B-Movies Live.
You will vote. They will vote. But there can only be one winner and that winner is everyone, The Party Party (Party). Confused? Join the live coverage of the votes, far too many televisions, and performance and such like.

HOT! HOT! HOT! Workshop - Sun 3 Jul, 2pm to 6pm. TIX Free by Application i.e. fill out application form via link; first come first served basis, where accepted.
Workshop leaders will expose their own practices that range from protests, to arrests; from satires, to subversions; in a fierce dissection of protest and performing arts.
Work Bitch - Tue 5 to Fri 8 July at 8pm (60mins). TIX: $12/$15.
In pursuit of his passion, Luke Devine will take you through his top 3 favourite jobs as an artist, from collection actual garbage to describing a different kind of trash. This is but the tip of the iceberg by this performer/artist.

Wait, there's more. There's the
HOT (film) Night (Tue 5 Jul at 7pm)
The Spoon Man (Thu 7 and Fri 8 Jul at 8pm)
Forums on The Green Wash Effect; Trashthetics (stealing, recycling, DIY constructing); and Final Forum.

You need to see it, to believe this massive program of entertainment, bursting out at its Melbourne launch.
