The climate crisis we are experiencing has been exacerbated by a crisis of representation. Artists from different disciplines have been trying to come up with images and narratives that could capture the core issues of this crisis, with varying success. Instead of staging fictional narratives, some theaters started inviting climate scientists and scholars to address the issues of climate change in direct conversations with each other and with the audience. Following that model, TAPS is inviting prominent scientists, artists, activists, and scholars who are working on this important issue to participate in Climate Conversations, which we offer as a direct response to the closure of representation caused by the slow violence of global warming. TAPS and co-sponsor StanfordLive, are approaching these dialogues the same TAPS would our regular productions; they are a new form of documentary theater.
