BIG GREEN THEATER

BIG GREEN THEATER

SUPERHERO CLUBHOUSE is a collective of artists and scientists working at the intersection of environmentalism and theater. We make original performances via a collaborative, green and rigorous process. Through the creation of new mythologies reflecting our changing world, we work to ignite environmental conversations among audiences and communities in the pursuit of revolutionary theater and ecological consciousness.


JUST UP

The Bushwick Starr & Superhero Clubhouse present

The 5th Annual Big green theateR FESTIVAL  

April 24-26 at The Bushwick Starr Theater

Plays written by fifth-grade students from P.S.123 and P.S.75 (both in Bushwick, Brooklyn)

Performed by a professional ensemble and ecologically designed. 

Our fifth annual eco-playwriting program for Bushwick fifth-graders culminated in a professional, green production of student-written eco-plays at The Bushwick Starr. Learn more about BGT here

In between performances of Big Green Theater, we hosted an open conversation with a panel of professionals from theater, science, and policy about sustainable theater and the importance of green art-making in society at large. Hosted in partnership with The League of Independent Theaters (LIT) and the Broadway Green Alliance (BGA). To become a "Green Captain" with the BGA or to join LIT's Green Practices Working Group, email us at info@superheroclubhouse.org.

 

HAPPENING NOW

"Rising Waters" Confab 

April 27-May 29

SHC Captain Jeremy Pickard is in residence at Robert Rauschenberg's estate on Captiva Island, Florida along with 21 artists, scientists, and thinkers, all focused on making work about climate change. Captiva, like all of southern Florida, is threatened with sea level rise and extreme climatic weather-- it's the perfect place for such a residency, and we're honored to be represented. While in residence, Jeremy is rewriting NEPTUNE (a play about water)
