Clubhouse = an inclusive gathering place for serious play

Weighty worldly questions might produce plodding drama with some artists, but the work of Superhero Clubhouse is playful, inventive, and daring.

who we are, what we do, & why

SUPERHERO CLUBHOUSE unites ecology and theater to enact justice, inspire hope, and activate a thriving future.

We are a New York-based community of artists, scientists, and environmental professionals invested in a long-term experiment to understand how theater can help shift consciousness in the face of global crises.

HOW WE DO WHAT WE DO

We use three tools to make eco-theater: Impossible Questions, Imposed Limitations, and Tangible Hope. Read about them here. 

our CORE values

JUSTICE
We view environmental crises as problems of equity for both humans and non-humans.

COLLABORATION
We consider differences in identity, discipline, medium, ability, and thought as vital to a creative process and a better world. 

HOPE
We believe that individuals possess the power to transform the way we are in the world, for the better.
