Climate Change Theatre Action Uptown

Dec 212019

Theatre artists from around the city and across the globe come together to uplift stories of climate heroes and climate warriors. Join us at the historic and cultural landmark Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute to celebrate local and global climate action through performance! The afternoon will feature short plays from Climate Change Theatre Action and conversation with local climate justice organizers.

CCTA Uptown spotlights original five-minute plays by Yolanda Bonnell (Ojibwe/South Asian/Canada), Georgina Escobar (US/Mexico), Monica Hoth von der Meden (Mexico), and Nathan Yungerberg (US). Shy Richardson (US) will perform excerpts from her spoken word piece Tres Marias. Special guests include Tamar Nachmany of Sunrise Movement.

Admission is free and open to the public.

The plays are directed by Gineiris Garcia and Julia Levine, and performed by Afua Busia, Marsha Cann, Charlie Chauca, Katherine George, and Karilyn Nunez. This event is produced by The Arctic Cycle and The UPROOT Series. Climate Change Theatre Action Uptown is made possible in part with public funds from Creative Engagement, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and administered by LMCC.
