New York City Premiere! 

THE LIVING STAGE combines horticulture, theatrical design, and community engagement to create recyclable, biodegradable, biodiverse, and edible performance spaces. The NYC version, led by Superhero Clubhouse in partnership with University Settlement and eco-scenographer Tanja Beer, will feature a lush living stage situated amidst the urban landscape of the Lower East Side. Created by local seniors and students, the space is then inhabited by performances made for and by the community.
