Synopsis
 
by Stephen Emmott and Katie Mitchell

By the end of this century, the human population is likely to be over ten billion. Just twenty-five years ago, it was less than five billion. How are the choices we're making as a species impacting upon our environment? And how will the sheer force of numbers affect the way we live in the future?

Scientist Stephen Emmott and director Katie Mitchell deliver a new kind of scientific lecture, highlighting key issues being lost in translation in our discussion of the environment, and paint a vivid portrait of a species with its head in the sand.

Stephen Emmott is Head of Computational Science at Microsoft Research and Professor of Computational Science at University of Oxford. Katie Mitchell is an associate of the Royal National Theatre. Ten Billion is a Royal Court Theatre and Festival d'Avignon co-production.
