There are no real climate leaders yet – who will step up at Cop26? | Greta Thunberg
Like other rich nations, the UK is more talk than action on the climate crisis. Something needs to change in GlasgowThe UN secretary general, António Guterres, called the recent IPCC report on the climate crisis a “code red” for humanity. “We are at the verge of the abyss,” he said.You might think those words would sound some kind of alarm in our society. But, like so many times before, this didn’t happen. The denial of the climate and ecological crisis runs so deep that hardly anyone takes real notice any more. Since no one treats the crisis like a crisis, the existential warnings keep on drowning in a steady tide of greenwash and everyday media news flow. Continue reading...

Jitney review – August Wilson’s subtle dissection of the American dream
Leeds PlayhouseWilson’s play eavesdrops on the lives of an African American taxicab crew in a quietly compelling snapshot of men on the margins in the 1970sSingle-location dramas are all about comings and goings, manoeuvring multiple characters and plot lines in the same space. So what better setting than a taxicab office? August Wilson’s 1970s drama weaves together the hectic workdays of a company of African American drivers in an environment where someone is always half in or out of the door.Jitney sits solidly within the tradition of the 20th-century American work play. At its heart is Becker, the archetypal hard worker. He runs a station of jitney cabs – unlicensed taxis serving the local African American community in Pittsburgh. Flowing in and out of this hub, a series of men try to make their way in the world. But the release of Becker’s son after two decades in jail, paired with the city’s encroaching plans for urban renewal, threaten to shatter this fragile equilibrium.Jitney is at Leeds Playhouse until 6 November.

Dream.risk.sing review – women’s stories told in idiosyncratic song
Jacqueline du Pré Music Building, Oxford, and onlineIn a late-night concert at the Oxford lieder festival, soprano Samantha Crawford and pianist Lana Bode covered topics from sexual assault to breastfeedingThe Oxford lieder festival has grown since its 2002 inception, with 100-plus events this year: ample room for big names singing the famous song cycles, and a heartening amount of emerging singers and new music. One late-night slot showcased Dream.risk.sing, an hour-long programme devised by the soprano Samantha Crawford and pianist Lana Bode. It focused on women’s stories told through song, and included lots of new or unfamiliar music. Those two facts were related.The title references woman.life.song, composed in 2000 by Judith Weir for Jessye Norman, from which we heard two songs. First came Breasts!, a chatty setting of words by Clarissa Pinkola Estés that could be a monologue for a pre-teen Judy Blume heroine. This benefited from Crawford’s easy communication of text, while Edge, a remembrance of first love to words by Toni Morrison, sounded haunting with Bode tracing its unrooted harmonies.Dream.risk.sing is available to stream until 30 November.
