who we are, what we do, & why
SUPERHERO CLUBHOUSE is a New York-based collective of artists and scientists working at the intersection of ecology and theater. We create fictional performances rooted in complex environmental questions, practice ecological production, and collaborate across disciplines and communities to enact a thriving society. We believe theater is an essential tool for evolving our consciousness in the face of global environmental crises.
Superhero = powerful individuals dedicated to making a better world
Clubhouse = an inclusive gathering place for serious play
