How do you envision the future? What aspects of that world are already here? The Future Within Us kicks off the 5th Climate Change Theatre Action festival with original short plays that grapple with a changing world. Join the Arts & Climate Initiative for this funny, poetic, and poignant evening of theatre, music, and magic tricks!

Featuring original short plays by Nicolas Billon (Canada), Chantal Bilodeau (U.S.), Miranda Rose Hall (U.S.), Ethan King (Philippines), and Kevin Matthew Wong (Canada). Conceived by Chantal Bilodeau and Julia Levine. Directed by Britt Berke. Original composition and music direction by Xander Browne. Starring London Carlisle, Annie Fang, Scott Redmond, Monica Sanborn, Sasha VanGuard, and Ema Zivkovic.

The Future Within Us is officially part of Climate Week NYC, an annual climate event that brings together business leaders, political change makers, local decision takers, and civil society representatives of all ages and backgrounds to drive the transition, speed up progress, and champion change that is already happening.

The Future Within Us is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature as well as with funds from Creative Engagement, a regrant program supported by The New York City Department of Cultural Affairs (DCLA) in partnership with the City Council, and administered by LMCC.

We gratefully acknowledge the State of New York and The Puffin Foundation for their support of this project.

The Arts & Climate Initiative uses storytelling and live performance to foster dialogue about our global climate crisis, create an empowering vision of the future, and inspire people to take action.
