Dr Joanne Jordan spent months in the slums of Dhaka talking to over 600 people in their homes, work places, local teashops and on street corners to understand how climate change is linked to or creating problems in their ‘everyday’ lives and how they are trying to find solutions to those problems.

With the research complete, she teamed up with the Department of Theatre and Performance Studies at the University of Dhaka to explore the findings through a ‘Pot Gan’, a traditional folk medium that combines melody, drama, pictures and dancing. The Pot Gan is not a static piece of theatre, it is an interactive event that challenges the audience to actively engage with the personal experiences of slum dwellers affected by climate change.
