Join us for an eco-theater experience! This is not your typical workshop or arts and envirnonment panel, but an immerisive laboratory to experiement with devising a better world. These labs offer participants a creative way to grapple with real and hypothetical climate challenges in a generative atmosphere that engages the hopeful imagination. Artists are welcome, but you don't have to be an artist to participate!
Labs are free of charge and last approximately 5 hours, and include the participantion of one local climate expert who lays the foundation for the 'story's' science and real world climate challenge. Facilitated by skilled and wildly funny artists, the group collaboratively creates a world where they have license to solve these problems.
Produced by Siren Arts and facilitated by Jeremy Pickard of the Superhero Clubhouse (NYC), the laboratories will take place in partnership with Florida International University’s (FIU) Eco-Humanities project at the Department of History and the Green School of International and Public Affairs, and in co-production with Climakaze Miami and FUNDarte, Inc.
Superhero Clubhouse is a New York-based collective of artists and scientists working at the intersection of environmentalism and theater. They create fictional performances rooted in complex environmental questions, practice ecological production, and collaborate across disciplines and communities to enact a thriving society. They believe theater is an essential tool for evolving our consciousness in the face of global environmental crises. Superhero Clubhouse will adapt their Lab model http://www.superheroclubhouse.org/lab/, which offers participants an interactive way to confront pressing questions about humanity's relationship to our planet through the lens of theater.
