Today, the Theatre Makers project hit a milestone of 100 participants!
We are very excited about the developments around the plays we are presenting for the alternative climate summit in San Francisco from September 8-15.
Theatre Maker participants Iryna and Stardust have co-written two plays:
- Ecopocalype: dystopian farce about how class continues to affect the impacts of environmental change
- Animal Factory Farm: fable chronicling how animals feel about the human impact on them and the climate
And we are working on co-creating another play:
- not yet titled: concerning desertification / drought and sea-level rise / flooding
Artists Sam and Antonio are working on set designs and we have a Painting Party scheduled for August 12 to paint the set backdrops.
We have already received a portable black theatre tent and the fabric for a red velvet curtain is on the way, so we will have a sewing party to finish the curtain soon.
Finally, we still need volunteers and donations for all kinds of theatre-related positions and tasks, such as painting sets, sound equipment, lighting equipment, venues, audience management (encouraging participation, handing out programs, etc.) at the shows, making props, making costumes, stage managing, and healthy vegan food, so please email us to volunteer or donate stuff. Donating funds would also be very helpful!
