Galvin Playhouse Theatre

Anthropocene is an original, highly visual devised physical theater performance that is ensemble based and movement driven. Each performer will play at least five characters and traverse a multi-level set. Anthropocene is unusual in that it does not follow character arcs, but rather offers flashes of characters within a mosaic of various worlds throughout history: the silk road, the Industrial Revolution, 1950s America, present day and into the future. 

Anthropocene incorporates innovative media design, dance, movement, text, sound and image into a visually-striking portrait of our world out of balance. This is a story of the escalation of consumption and how we are hurtling towards an unsustainable future.

Content warning: This production includes apocalyptic content, war, nuclear disaster, an extinction event and climate change/the climate crisis. It also includes alarms, sirens, strobe lights, loud sounds and flashing lights.
