CCTA 2017 is a collaboration between the Center for Sustainable Practice in the Arts, NoPassport Theatre Alliance, The Arctic Cycle, Theatre Without Borders, and York University.
Modeled on previous NoPassport theatre actions focused on gun control and the aftermath of the Deepwater Horizon BP oil spill, CCTA draws on the expertise and resources of local artists, while being global in scope and uniting multiple countries around a common issue.
Fifty playwrights from around the world were asked to write 1- to 5-minute plays about climate change with the following prompt:
Assume your audience knows as much as you do. Assume they are as concerned as you are. But they may not know what to do with this information and those concerns. So how can we turn the challenges of climate change into opportunities?
The plays featured in Eckerd’s reading all have an animal theme and reflect the theme of changing challenges into oppportunities.
Runtime is approximately one hour.
A series of short play readings on the topic of climate change
