Full Metal Aquatic: A Future Seas Thriller - for the General Public

Event Date: 2 February, 2022

In the year 2030, the Reverie floating platform is the ultimate in offshore luxury: a high-end tourist destination, fish farm and energy source. Without warning, it's been taken down by hijackers. Now, Reverie designer Lara Nguyen is reluctantly pulled out of retirement to help infiltrate the facility she left a decade ago - and to face her own dark secrets.

Full Metal Aquatic is a high-stakes action thriller set in the oceans a decade from now. But crucially, the story takes place in two different futures. Working with researchers from the Future Seas project, writers Jordan Prosser and David Finnigan will tell the story of the Reverie's hijacking in the future we hope to see - and in the future we want to prevent. It is designed to be a light-hearted and creative way to explore what our future could feasibly look like, depending on the actions we take now.  

The performance will be introduced by Prof Gretta Pecl, and will be followed by a game and discussion which unpacks the critical forces that are shaping the future of our oceans. Download poster of the event here.
