who we are, what we do, & why
SUPERHERO CLUBHOUSE unites ecology and theater to enact justice, inspire hope, and activate a thriving future.
We are a New York-based community of artists, scientists, and environmental professionals invested in a long-term experiment to understand how theater can help shift consciousness in the face of global climate change.
What is eco-theater, and how do we do what we do? Read here.
Superhero = powerful individuals dedicated to making a better world
Clubhouse = an inclusive gathering place for serious play
our CORE values
We recognize that environmental crises are problems of equity for both humans and non-humans.
We believe that individuals possess the power to transform the way we are in the world, for the better.
We consider differences in identity, discipline, medium, ability, and thought as vital to a creative process and a better world.
We make creative spaces and stories upon a strong foundation of environmental research, and view scientists and vital collaborators.
