The Polar Bear (Is Dead)

Have you ever thought about what it means to lose something forever?

Natalie and Daniele have made a silly show full of hope, about losing everything and being alone. It’s about all of those things, but essentially, it’s about the climate crisis.There will also be a fern, a polar bear and a conversation with Natalie’s mum about the end of the world.

The two of them have found a way to perform together despite being 908 miles apart by foot, because if this was a film, that wouldn’t stop them. It’s a show about never wanting to say goodbye.

The Polar Bear (is Dead) is a new international collaboration between theatre makers Natalie Bellingham (Wakefield, UK) and Daniele Pennati (Milan, Italy).
