Silent Spring Revisited - Rachel Carson's fight for nature

Rachel Carson has been in Jan Bolwell’s life since
she was nine years old. Her conservationist grandmother introduced
her to Carson’s famous book Silent Spring, that exposed the dangers
of the chemical pesticide DDT. Jan revisits this book through adult eyes,
as she plays Rachel Carson in her fight for nature.

An exciting creative team has worked collaboratively on this work -
director Annie Ruth, composer Jan Bolton and lighting designer Helen Todd.
Audiences find out about Rachel’s struggle to bring
an important environmental issue into the light.
They also are challenged to consider current ecological
and environmental issues in their own backyard.

Wellington City Council is rapt to be supporting this
custom-built tour of Silent Spring Revisited to local community centres.
This pilot project explores ways in which artists might build community
within some of the city’s shared suburban buildings.

Jan Bolwell - ‘Wit, fluency, precision and charm..’
