The project is a collaboration between Embassy of Sweden in USA, Dramaten (The Royal Dramatic Theatre of Sweden), The Earth Commons—Georgetown University’s Institute for Environment and Sustainability, and The Laboratory for Global Performance and Politics. The project will be represented by Director/Playwright Jacob Hirdwall, The Royal Dramatic Theatre in Stockholm and project director Caitlin Nasema Cassidy.
  • Swedish artist Anna U Davis, known for her bold, colorful mixed-media work, where she explores social inequalities. 
  • Swedish/Polish dancer and choreographerLidia Wos. Wos has developed a very personal and characteristic style based on a natural and organic way of creating movements often with an absurd twist.
