Please note: All seating will be on stage, therefore this production has limited seating capacity.

Anthropocene is an original, highly visually devised physical theater performance that is ensemble based and movement driven, using a non-linear approach to storytelling. Each performer will play at least five characters and traverse a multi-level set. Anthropocene is unusual in that it does not follow character arcs, but rather offers flashes of characters within a mosaic of crucial moments throughout history: the Silk Road, the Industrial Revolution, 1950s America, present day and into the future.

Anthropocene incorporates innovative media design, dance, movement, text, sound and image into a visually-striking portrait of our world out of balance. This is a story of the escalation of consumption and how we are hurdling towards an unsustainable future.

Directed by Rachel Bowditch
