What if fossil fuels disappeared tomorrow?
JUPITERis a 200-year-long dialogue between Humanity and a man who made all fossil fuels disappear permanently from the Earth. Featuring original music and created in collaboration with energy experts, JUPITERasks whether it is right or effective to impose radical change for the greater good.
Made in collaboration with environmental experts from Columbia University and Environmental Defense Fund.
Superhero Clubhouse is a collective of artists and scientists working at the intersection of environmentalism and theater.
Kaimera Productions invites audiences to seek new perspectives on global issues through live experiences created by experts in and outside of the arts.
"Unlike most climate change-related art, Jupiter (a play about power) doesn’t fall strictly on the alarmist side of the argument about the state of our planet. Rather, this play asks the question 'Should we impose radical societal change for the greater good?'"
