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.
URANUS (A PLAY ABOUT WASTE) READING
July 11 at the Hopkins Center at Dartmouth College, a part of Vox Fest
The first in our series of Planet Plays began being renovated this summer, thanks to a residency with VoxFest.
In 1780 England, William and Caroline Herschel are building homemade telescopes in an attempt to reach the future and an uncatalogued star. In 2080 on the planet Uranus, two siblings are traveling backwards in time in an attempt to re-collect everything they have ever thrown away. A tale of legacy and progress inspired by contemporary problems of waste, Grimms’ Hansel and Gretel, and the Greek origin story.
EARTH (A PLAY ABOUT PEOPLE) OPEN WORKSHOP
July 24, 6pm-8pm at The Drama League, NYC
After a successful development process via LMCC last year, we've gone back to the drawing board with a brand new experiment involving audience-created material and a hybrid performance, half rehearsed and half impromptu. Free, but limited space: please RSVP by reserving here.
A couple faced with the possibility of having a child embark on separate journeys through time and space. An ever-changing theatrical event exploring the personal, social and environmental questions surrounding contemporary issues of overpopulation. Created by audiences and local artists in collaboration with international teams of artists and scientists based on limitations inspired by the Voyager Golden Record.
August 30, 12pm-6pm
Our next Lab is focused on climate change and energy systems, featuring presenting expert Michael Gerrard, environmental law professor at Columbia University.
