Climate Change Theatre Action
“Climate change isn’t an “issue” to add to the list of things to worry about, next to health care and taxes. It is a civilizational wake-up call. A powerful message—spoken in the language of fires, floods, droughts, and extinctions—telling us...that we need to evolve.” - Naomi Klein
This program asks companies to read or create a performance of one of 50 short climate change plays in support of the United Nations COP23 meetings chaired by Fiji and hosted in Bonn, Germany. These 50 plays come from over 25 different cultures and address different aspects of climate change.
For this event, Pi will be joining our colleagues at The Only Animal in producing an afternoon of artistic response to climate change by some of Vancouver's finest artists. Companies will choose works from the readings and performances intended to bring awareness to, and foster discussion around, climate change.
Some of the other contributors to the event are Julia Siedlanowska, Lindsay Curl and Danielle Klaudt, Renee Iaci of Shameless Hussy, Brenda Muñoz with Lissa Neptuno, Chelsea Thompson and Olivia Lucas, Linda Pitt of Resounding Scream, Lori Watt of Flocking Divas with Lindsay Nelson and Charity Principe, Sara Vickruck and Jamie King, and Chelsea Haberlin.

Join us on November 12th at the Red Gate Revue Stage on Granville Island to take action against climate change!
Doors will be at 1:30pm with the show starting at 2pm. Admission is by donation.
The main goal of the international project is to invite as many people as possible to participate in a global conversation about climate change. Vancouver’s Climate Change Theatre Action represents one response by local theatre artists – writers, actors, directors - to the international call to respond to a global issue.
