Superhero Clubhouse is a collective of artists and scientists working at the intersection of environmentalism and theater. Based in NYC since 2008, we take a holistic approach to theater in which content, process, and production remain tethered to complex environmental questions. We work collaboratively, rigorously, and sustainably upon a foundation of sound science to create intimate, fictional events that ignite crucial environmental conversations. We believe that the way we make art should be a model for a thriving society; therefore our design and production practices are vigilantly green. Our various initiatives, engaging diverse audiences and communities, tenaciously pursue deep ecological consciousness, revolutionary theater, and tangible hope in the face of great adversity.

THE LIVING STAGE NYC
WITH TANJA BEER & UNIVERSITY SETTLEMENT & Tenants' association at Meltzer senior center
August 2016- August 2017
The Living Stage combines theatrical design, permaculture, and community engagement to create a recyclable, biodegradable, and edible performance space. The NYC version of The Living Stage will feature a lush, living stage situated amidst the urban landscape of the Lower East Side. Created and constructed by Superhero Clubhouse in partnership with community groups, this space is then inhabited by performances made for and by the community.
