UPCOMING

PIECE OF CAKE in VIENNA

A German translation of Piece of Cake, a one-act play by SHC Co-Director Lanxing Fu, will be performed onstage at the MuTh Theater in Vienna, Austria this October! Lani wrote Piece of Cake in 2019 in collaboration with climate scientist Fabian Wagner, while in residence at IIASA science research institute. In the play, past, present, and future exist in one space as four generations of a family spanning 1950 to 2050 gather around a table to share an absurd, abundant, limitless feast. The story traverses a century of humans’ changing relationship to resources and shifting ideas of what it means to have children. If you happen to be in Vienna next month, check it out!

IN DEVELOPMENT

THERE WILL BE MONSTERS

We're creating a new project called There Will Be Monsters, a theatrical game experience for a hopeful climate future. This summer we piloted the first performances of this project after a four-week residency at Usdan Summer Camp for the Arts on Long Island, with young campers as well as Youth Fellows from the NY Harbor School. In our first iteration of the project, a group of audience members portraying multi-species heroes travel through a magical version of Long Island, seeking tangible solutions to the growing threat of climate "monsters."
