Eco-Performance Lab + Trés Marias
THE LAB is a creative, interdisciplinary workshop for collaborative response to climate crises through guided performance-making. The theme of the day will be displacement caused by climate change, through the lens of Puerto Rico and Hurricane Maria. This workshop is designed for people of any discipline and background; you do not need prior experience in theater to participate!
This Lab will be accompanied by a work-in-progress performance of 2018-2019 SHC Fellows' piece, Trés Marias, exploring climate justice, Puerto Rican identity, and hope after hurricanes.
FREE. Hearty snacks provided. Questions and RSVP: firstname.lastname@example.org
