Where Have All The Glaciers Gone?
Fresh from her success with Versailles 2015 and Ferry Play -- the podplay on the Staten Island Ferry -- director Erin B. Mee is back again with a devised play about climate change, Where Have All The Glaciers Gone? -- part of the Climate Change Theatre Action.
Climate Change Theatre Action is a series of worldwide readings and performances intended to bring awareness to, and foster discussion about, climate change during the months of November and December 2015. A joint venture between NoPassport, The Arctic Cycle and Theatre Without Borders, this action is in support of the United Nations 2015 Paris Climate Conference (COP21) taking place November 30-December 13, 2015. To date, 100 collaborators have committed to hosting events, ranging from readings in classrooms to day-long festivals, from films and radio programs to site-specific performances at the foot of glaciers. Where Have All The Glaciers Gone? is a fully-staged production.
Where Have All The Glaciers Gone? features actor Colin Waitt (The Mysteries at The Flea, Kapow-I-Go-Go), actress Caitlin Goldie (Readymade Cabaret, A Serious Banquet), dancer Phoebe Rose Sandford, and choreographer/dancer Jonathan Matthews (Versailles 2015). Text is by August Schulenberg, Lynn Rosen, Kendra Fanconi, and others.
Performances are: Friday December 11 at 7pm, Saturday December 12 at 2pm, and Sunday December 13 at 7pm. Location: 244 Greene Street, ground floor (NYU).
