Braving a New World: Audio Theater and the Climate Crisis

April 23 , 6:00 pm 8:00 pm EDT

Every artform can open us up to our own ability to take meaningful action on the climate crisis. The New School and the Climate Museum are delighted to present a program examining forms of audio theater dedicated to this end. Storytelling holds great power across human cultures, and so does the oral tradition. The increasing variety and availability of contemporary audio culture, including podcasts and audiobooks, has generated renewed interest in audio theater—not widely heard since the radio dramas of the early twentieth century.  

This event will share work from artists focused on climate justice who are redefining ‘sound art’ forms. The panel will be moderated by Cecilia Rubino and Sarah Montague (New School) and include Darian Dauchan (Poet/Musician), Chantal Bilodeau (Arts & Climate Initiative), Lanxing Fu (Superhero Clubhouse/Big Green Theater), and Ben Williams (Elevator Repair Service).
