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.
EARTH (A PLAY ABOUT PEOPLE) OPEN WORKSHOP
July 24 at The Drama League, NYC
After a successful development process via LMCC last year, we went back to the drawing board with a brand new experiment involving audience-created material and a hybrid performance, half rehearsed and half impromptu.
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.
More info on our bimonthly Labs here.
Free to participate.

About Flying Ace:
Perched on the roof of his doghouse, armed only with a typewriter and a rare imagination, a dog attempts to adapt after an unusual hurricane washed him out to sea.
