The Plays

Our community-based plays, Climates of Change (2017) and The Next Storm (2019) investigate the disproportionate effects a warming planet has on the world’s most vulnerable and marginalized populations.  Our ensemble – comprised of Cornell students and citizens of Tompkins County – discovered that climate change is at once an ecological and environmental issue and a matter of economic and political domination. We learned that climate resilience requires broad, visionary alliances and climate justice must begin with community-led solutions.
