Using Theater to Explore Issues Related to Climate Change

April 10 @ 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm

Debra Wise, Artistic Director at Underground Railway Theater

In this interactive workshop, participants will brainstorm what they know – and feel – about pressing problems related to climate change, generate provocative questions, and explore their questions through a simple collaborative playwriting exercise. Participants will also get some background information on the world-premiere of SILA, by Chantal Bilodeau, about the intersection of culture, class and climate change in the Canadian Arctic. SILA will have a work-in-progress reading at Tufts on Monday, February 10, and its world premiere at Central Square Theater in Cambridge April 24 – May 25 (www.centralsquaretheater.org). The workshop will be led by Downing Cless, Associate Professor of Drama (with longtime involvement in eco-theater) and Debra Wise, Artistic Director of Underground Railway Theater and Co-Director of Catalyst Collaborative@MIT, an ongoing science theater project.

This event is part of the Lunch and Learn series sponsored by the Environmental Studies Department. See the full line-up of spring speakers here.
