Derelict presents: Storm by Search Party

STORM explores climate grief, the uncanny feeling of being alive in a climate catastrophe, and despair at years of knowing and not doing.

As the IPCC warn of just 12 years to avert climate disaster, Search Party perform 12 duets at the end of the world, tonight at Media Factory on Kirkham Street, Preston.
