Superhero Clubhouse is a New York-based collective of artists and scientists working at the intersection of environmentalism and theater. We create fictional performances rooted in complex environmental questions, practice ecological production, and collaborate across disciplines and communities to enact a thriving society. We believe theater is an essential tool for evolving our consciousness in the face of global environmental crises.
THE SCIENCE AND STAGE COLLABORATIVE FELLOWSHIP
September 2016 - December 2016
For four months this fall, three environmental experts and three theater artists will form a diverse ensemble, studying a variety of climate change topics and approaches to theater-making through a series of bimonthly workshops, presentations, and social events. The fellowship program will culminate in a rehearsal process and performance of new work made by the ensemble.
THE LIVING STAGE NYC
WITH TANJA BEER & UNIVERSITY SETTLEMENT
September 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.
