The Sybil Disobedients emerged in response to COVID.

The costumes ensure physical distancing and the slow gliding /spinning choreography draws attention to the agitprop-slogans on the skirts. In a series of street performance protests in 2020, Extinction Rebellion Wingecarribee discovered that the Sybil Disobedients calm and charm people. The gentle performers, striking costumes and slow, simple choreography regulate physiological responses to anxiety and trauma. Released from fight/flight/freeze responses, people seem to be able to talk, think, and feel about the terrifying ecological and climate issues we face, and imagine how to resist it.

 

Guerrilla theatre is a form of socially and politically active public performance, in which actors use satire, improvisation, and drama to disrupt cultural norms.
