Luciole International Theatre Company presents Celsius, a mixed media production featuring a collection of short plays by contemporary playwrights from across the globe as part of the Climate Change Theatre Action 2017. The pieces contain video, photography, art projection, and original music for a true celebration of science and the human spirit.
When thinking about contemporary concerns that are globally affecting human lives, we must contend with unresolved and often controversial environmental issues. Through a mixture of serious, comedic, poetic, realistic, futuristic, and dystopian perspectives, Celsius creates a space for reflecting on the world we live in, while representing the voices of contemporary playwrights from diverse cultures and the work of Houston-based art photographer John Bernhard, who traveled around the globe to create his series Blue Marble, focused on environmental destruction as seen through the eyes of children.
The CCTA 2017 is a collaboration between the Center for Sustainable Practice in the Arts, No Passport Theatre Alliance, The Arctic Cycle, Theatre Without Borders, and York University, taking place in 41 countries and 63 cities in the USA. It is supported by the Compton Foundation, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, and a York University 150 Grant.
