The global performance project is a collaboration between Dramaten (The Royal Dramatic Theatre of Sweden), The Earth Commons—Georgetown University’s Institute for Environment and Sustainability, the Embassy, and The Laboratory for Global Performance and Politics, co-conceived by Caitlin Nasema Cassidy and Jacob Hirdwall.
We Hear You—A Climate Archive is a global performance project exploring youth perspectives on climate crisis/chaos.
Inspired by Greta Thunberg’s urgent question “Can you hear me?,” this project seeks to amplify—and to record for future generations—the ways that today’s young people are experiencing changes in the fundamental forces of the earth. We Hear You—A Climate Archive will include a two-year series of curated international performance and the launch of a digital platform for global climate storytelling. In addition to these public programs, the project will also include curricular engagement with students at Georgetown University.
Following its launch in DC March, 2022 during the COAL + ICE exhibition presented by the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and Asia Society, We Hear You—A Climate Archive will commission 77 additional stories from young people around the world. These commissions will inform the launch of a digital platform for global climate storytelling, as well as a multi-year international curated performance series, culminating in a performance at Dramaten directed by Jacob Hirdwall.
