Not Waving

Not Waving from Kat Austen on Vimeo, film by Nekane Requejo de Ozamiz

Not Waving explores the relationship between our awareness of environmental issues and our impact upon them. Melting ice floes, drowning micropeople, a social-media connected tea urn and a bath: Not Waving uses humour and empathy in equal measure.

Not Waving was first exhibited as part of LAStheatre’s New Atlantis immersive theatre show.
