Rosendale Climate Change Theatre Action
Rosendale Theatre, Rosendale, NY
December 9, 7:30pm
Climate change is upon us—erratic seasons, floods, fires, and drought, mega-storms like Sandy. The UN is meeting yet again to attempt to take action. But they need help! They need the arts! They need us!
Hudson River Playback Theatre is joining CLIMATE CHANGE THEATRE ACTION, a worldwide theatre initiative that is part of ARTCOP21, a larger arts coalition in support of the UN conference.
Join us for an evening that will include two scripted plays especially commissioned for CCTA—MOTHER by Chantal Bilodeau and THE REASONS by August Schulenburg—as well as your own very important stories enacted on the spot. What was the first moment when you felt concern for the planet’s future? What scares you the most? What are your hopes, your intentions?
Please bring your stories, reflections, and passions to share with your community. HRPT’s team of actors and musician will listen and then embody those stories in spontaneous theatre, so that everyone gets it.
Local environmental action groups will be on hand with sign-ups and factual information.
All are welcome (school-age and older). Admission by donation.
