Climates of Change
Co-directed by Sarah K. Chalmers & Godfrey L. Simmons

Developed by students of the Department of Performing and Media Arts' Theatre and Social Change class with the guidance of Ithaca-based theatre group Civic Ensemble's artists, the play is created from stories told by various communities throughout Tompkins County about global warming: the controversies, the science, the economic impacts, and the different ways this crisis affects diverse populations. 

Delivered in the style of a Living Newspaper, a theatrical form popularized during the Federal Theatre Project of the 1930s, this project is funded by a grant from Engaged Cornell and created in collaboration with climatologist Toby Ault.
