TEN BILLION: Royal Court Theatre, Jerwood: Continues till August 11th

By the end of this century, the human population is likely to be over ten billion. Just twenty five years ago, it was less than five billion. How will the sheer force of numbers affect the way we live in the future? Scientist Stephen Emmott and director Katie Mitchell deliver a new kind of scientific lecture. TEN BILLION paints a vivid portrait of a species with its head in the sand. Also playing at The Avignon Festival 23rd to 26th July.
