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.
"Rising Waters" Confab
April 27-May 29
SHC Captain Jeremy Pickard was in residence at Robert Rauschenberg's estate on Captiva Island, Florida along with 20 extraordinary artists, scientists, and thinkers, all focused on making work about climate change. Captiva, like all of southern Florida, is threatened with sea level rise, extreme weather, salt water intrusion, habitat loss, and degradation of water and ecosystems; it was the perfect place for such a residency, and we were honored to be represented. While in residence, Jeremy worked on rewriting NEPTUNE (a play about water), and created a site-specific performance called The Water Table: it took place in the main studio's freight elevator, giving one audience member at a time a ride through south Florida's… uh… water table.

JUPITER (A PLAY ABOUT POWER) WORK-IN-PROGRESS PERFORMANCES
Join us this summer along the beautiful Hudson River for a work-in-progress performance of our eighth Planet Play and the culmination of a month's residency at the Catwalk Institute.
Before retreating to the planet Jupiter, a young tycoon overhauls the entire energy system on Earth. His imposed vision promises to halt climate change, but demands costly sacrifices from all citizens of the world. A duet inspired by Frankenstein and energy policy.
SHC Captain Jeremy Pickard featured in Society of Directors and Choreographer's fall journal. READ THE ARTICLE BY CLICKING HERE.
