Superhero Clubhouse unites ecology and theater to enact justice, cultivate hope, and inspire a thriving future.

Original Performances

Superhero Clubhouse makes original performances for both adult and family audiences. This work is created by multidisciplinary teams of artists and scientists and performed in public spaces, schools, theaters, and museums in New York City and beyond.

Public Workshops

Free and open to all, our public workshops offer a creative space for exploring questions that arise from issues of climate change and environmental justice. Workshops are regularly held throughout the year in New York City.

The Fellowship

The Fellowship is a long-term creative residency for a select group of individuals to explore questions of environmental justice through performance. Fellows engage in rigorous research, experimentation, and the creation of a performance for a public audience.

Community Education & Empowerment

In collaboration with The Bushwick Starr, Superhero Clubhouse brings environmental education to elementary students through after-school playwriting programs. Kids learn about local ecological problems, write original plays, and see their work professionally produced for their peers and families.

Our Values

Justice

We recognize that environmental crises are problems of equity for both humans and non-humans.

Hope

We believe that individuals possess the power to transform the way we are in the world for the better.

Collaboration

We consider differences in identity, discipline, medium, ability, and thought as vital to a creative process and a better world.

Science

We make creative spaces and stories upon a strong foundation of environmental research, and view scientists as vital collaborators.

Weighty worldly questions might produce plodding drama with some artists, but the work of Superhero Clubhouse is playful, inventive, and daring.

The Brooklyn Rail

Superhero Clubhouse [has] enlisted an engaged audience, and a community of artists, actors, playwrights, and producers that see eco theater as valid, needed, and part of the theatrical tradition. In the process they are creating an eco cannon that was considered woefully missing only a short time ago.

The workshop [Superhero Clubhouse] did for my Columbia University class was wonderful in helping the students think about how they communicate science. The students loved it and uniformly said they were now better prepared to communicate their science to a variety of audiences.

I can’t believe our kids wrote these plays. Bless you and the team for bringing this out of them.

Now, more than ever, we need this type of theater. We need to ask the big questions, fearlessly, and with compassion. Superhero Clubhouse is doing exactly that.

We see that artists and scientists aren’t so different. Both are asking tough questions; searching for answers in an enigmatic world.
