a chat with Brianna

Q: Can you please introduce yourself?

My name is Brianna and I play #11. I am in 11th grade and live in Ottawa.

Q: What does being in 12 mean to you?

I am so happy, excited and honoured to be in 12. It’s about a powerful subject I deeply care about. I think it’s wonderful that 12 is not only for entertainment because it affects us all right now.

Q: What’s your favourite part of the natural world? Why?

I really love forests. I take walks in the woods and hear the sound of the wind blowing, moving the trees, the cracking sounds of branches, the sounds of animals close to me, the water in a stream… I love the serenity and the calming presence of the forest.

Q: What’s one of your specific Climate Change worries?

La déforestation excessive. | Excessive deforestation.

Q: What’s a question you’d like to ask anyone you could about Climate Change?

C’est quoi le changement climatique ? Chaque réponse est différente. Pas tout le monde sait que le changement climatique existe et/ou ce que c’est vraiment et/ou son impact! |What is Climate Change? Not everyone even knows that Climate Change exists or what it really is and what it does. And, every answer is different!

Q: When the audience leaves 12, you hope they will–

Take it as an opportunity for introspection, outrospection and action. I hope they talk about it with everyone they know. I hope seeing this play changes them, even if just a little.

Q: What’s your favorite word?
