THEATER THREE COLLABORATIVE, USA, & CIE DE FACTO, SWITZERLAND
This ArtCop21 climate change drama is a collaboration between the 20 year-old, award-winning, New York-based Theater Three Collaborative which developed the play and premiered it in 2014, and Cie De Facto, a new rising theater company in Switzerland whose artistic director, Nathalie Sandoz will co-direct and act.
In “Extreme Whether”, a major climate scientist and his twin sister, a publicist for the energy industry, engage in heated conflict over science and an inherited wilderness estate. The story includes an intersex child who saves frogs and a Thoreau-like Uncle who promotes solar, wind and wave renewable energy.
Inspired by the life and work of James Hansen, America’s foremost climate scientist, and Jennifer Francis, Arctic Ice Scientist, “Extreme Whether” explores the emotional dilemmas and the courage of climate change truth-tellers and, in scenes of magical realism, their love of nature.
