Vassar College

The Climate Change Play Festival

The Climate Change Play Festival will be an hour-long showcase of short plays about climate change and other environmental issues. Come to Sanders Classroom this Sunday at 2pm to see eight short works directed by eight talented Vassar students, and then stick around afterwards for a bit to chat and eat some delicious food catered by Kamini’s Love Feast! (All food will be vegan, and can be consumed by hand in an effort to reduce waste—please bring your own reusable container if you’d like something to hold it!)

Come to be entertained, to learn something new, to eat something yummy, to support friends, and to think about climate change and the environment in a different way. Whatever your reasons, just come!

(In an effort to reduce paper and resource usage, the event’s program will be available as a Google Doc via this link on the day of show: tinyurl.com/ccpf-vassar)

Climate Talks

Climate Talks is a devised theatre workshop exploring the ways in which climate change has – and will continue to – shape our lives. Participants will engage in an interpersonal process to create original performance pieces that may be shared on social media as a show of support for the 2017 UN Climate Change Conference. Participants need not have performance experience, only an interest and willingness to play.

Participation in the workshop is free, but 100% of any donations will be given to the Hispanic Federation’s “Unidos” hurricane relief fund.

The Climate Talks workshop is presented as part of the the Climate Change Theatre Action and will include a rehearsal performance of RUBE GOLDBERG DEVICE FOR THE GENERATION OF HOPE by Jordan Hall.

Simple Studios – rehearsal space
134 West 29th Street, New York, NY
October 7th from 12PM to 2.30PM

A video and contemporary circus event

A collaboration between Videomøllen and Acting for Climate.

We are going to host an event where we will perform a short contemporary circus performance including plastic waste, acrobatics, acrodance and handstand. Then we will show the movie North of the Sun in the outdoor cinema.

The artist performing will be Ida Langkilde, Line Helveg-Larsen and Abigael Winsvold. The selected CCTA piece is the song INFINITE WATER by Greencard Wedding (Jody Christopherson and Ryan McCurdy).

Videomøllen is an open air cinema and exhibition space in the heart of Nørrebro. They host movie nights, show video art exhibitions, project words of wisdom, and much more. Videomøllen is a non-profit organisation of volunteers.
