Introducing our 2017 Season
7th Annual Big Green Theater Festival
April 28-30 at The Bushwick Starr
Our beloved and award-winning eco-playwriting program for Brooklyn fifth-graders that we produce annually in partnership with The Bushwick Starr continues, this year with two schools: P.S.239 in Ridegwood and P.S.075 in Bushwick. From January-March, students are guided in writing original eco-plays, learning the fundamentals of playwriting and environmental science. In April, the kids' plays are professionally performed by adult artists and designed using only sustainable materials and efficient instruments.
PLUTO (no longer a play)
May 11-June 3 at The Brick
PLUTO is an allegory about extinction… or, it used to be, maybe. Three humans attempt to give a presentation about the remains of a play that no longer exists. The fragments seem to suggest the story of a unicorn, a hunter, and a wizard, all struggling to adapt to a rapidly changing world. Facing similar dilemmas, the three humans reenact their findings, searching for hope among the bones.
In July we continue the work with high school students at El Puente, whose creative writing on climate change will be presented as part of Ghetto Hors D’oeuvres: Climate, an annual multimedia performance event by local Brooklyn artists, for the community of Bushwick.
The Living Stage
October 2016-August 2017 with The Performance Project at University Settlement
The Living Stage combines theatrical design, permaculture, and community engagement to create a lush, outdoor performance space that doubles as a community garden. Situated amongst the urban landscape of the Lower East Side, Manhattan, the Living Stage will be designed by an intergenerational ensemble of local residents and erected in the courtyard of the Meltzer Senior Center. The Stage will be inaugurated in August 2017 with an original performance responding climate resiliency, created by participants.
Flying Ace and the Storm of the Century
October 2017, NYC
Flying Ace returns to NYC to honor the 5th Anniversary of Hurricane Sandy. Perched on the roof of his doghouse, armed only with a typewriter and a rare imagination, a dog attempts to adapt after an unusual hurricane washed him out to sea. Inspired by Charles Shultz' iconic beagle and leading science surrounding extreme climatic events, Flying Ace is a multi-disciplinary tour-de-force arousing hope in the face of disasters caused by climate change.
Science and Stage Collaborative Fellowship
An initiative uniting environmental experts and theater artists in a semester-long residency to tackle pressing questions about humanity’s relationship to climate change. The Fellowship gives participants an opportunity to work collaboratively with professionals in other disciplines to address critical issues. Fellows simultaneously study a variety of climate change topics and approaches to theater-making through a series of workshops, excursions, and rehearsals. The fellowship program culminates in the performance of a new work made by the ensemble and performed in December at our annual Solstice Celebration.
