Skaraventer Project is one of the worldwide artists involved in Climate Change Theatre Action.
The CLIMATE CHANGE THEATRE ACTION is a series of worldwide readings and performances intended to bring awareness to, and foster discussion around, climate change in November and December 2015.
This action is in support of the United Nations 2015 Paris Climate Conference (COP21) taking place in Paris, November 30-December 11, 2015. This momentous event, combined with the U.S. assuming the chair of the Arctic Council in April 2015, means that climate change will be an important conversation in the months to come.
A collection of 1-5 minute plays, songs and poems by writers from all six livable continents, curated by Caridad Svich, Chantal Bilodeau and Elaine Avila, has been made available to collaborators worldwide. To date, more than 80 collaborators have agreed to host events, ranging from informal readings in classrooms to day-long festivals, from radio programs and film adaptations to site-specific performances at the foot of glaciers. Events will be registered with ArtCOP21 and, when technically possible, livestreamed on HowlRound TV.
