ATONAL Theatre Company – Sofia Marathaki

The Forest

What if humankind’s ‘peaceful’ co-existence with nature turns out to be one of the utopias of the 21st century? With the harrowing images of the Amazon rainforest wildfires and Australia bushfires still fresh in mind, Sofia Marathaki delivers a performance raising awareness of environmental issues, based on Annie Proulx’s novel Barkskins (the author is perhaps most famous for her short story Brokeback Mountain). Fiction meets documentary theatre, with the dramaturgy encompassing audio-visual footage of interviews with scientists, foresters and biologists, comprising a comprehensive narrative about the history of forests.
