Community Education & Empowerment

In collaboration with The Bushwick Starr, Superhero Clubhouse brings environmental education to elementary students through after-school playwriting programs. Kids write plays about local ecology, climate change, and environmental justice, then see their work professionally produced for audiences of their peers and families.
THE LIVING STAGE combines horticulture, theatrical design, and community engagement to create recyclable, biodegradable, biodiverse, and edible performance spaces. The NYC version, which took place in August 2017, featured a lush living stage situated amidst the urban landscape of the Lower East Side. Created by local seniors and students, the space was then inhabited by performances made for and by the community.
