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.
