An immersive journey through the history, present, and future of humanity’s relationship with the earth.
The premiere performance of Space for Action: Earth Rising will bring human impact and potential into perspective through musical improvisation, spoken word, and a dynamic set that acts as an instrument unto itself. As the audience moves through this experience, they will be moved to a deeper understanding of our place amidst our changing climate and planet. Featuring original music, text, and set design by the Space for Action collective: Peter Godart, Tiandra Ray, Edmar Colón, and Daniel Joseph.
Performers & Musicians: Nadia Washington, Manolo Mairena, Ivanna Cuesta, Max Ridley, Peter Godart, and Edmar Colón

Note: Each show has a capacity of 40 audience members and will run for 30 minutes. We ask that patrons arrive 10 minutes early to their ticketed show time to enable a smooth transition between performances. Audience members will be standing during the performance, with limited seating available if needed.
Space for Action is a call for all humans to convene, process, and make progress on the existential threat posed by climate change through curated collective experiences at the intersection of art, science, and culture. As a format, Space for Action aims to 1) address and de-stigmatize the feelings of isolation and powerlessness that accompany this threat, thereby making space in our hearts and minds for action, and 2) provide literal (and virtual) space for people to engage with one another, the issues, and their cultural implications to foster real innovation and to re-imagine our society post-climate change.
