EarthQuake: Moving the Earth with Our Voices
a livestream immersive production by Same Boat Theatre Collective

Sunday, October 25, 2020 - 7:00pm

Same Boat Theater Collective, a diverse team of Bay Area and international playwrights, directors and actors, invites the Mechanics' Institute community to witness “EarthQuake: Moving the Earth with Our Voices” a livestream immersive production of readings that explore global environmental issues. Join them, their global cast, and audiences from San Francisco, London and New Delhi.

EarthQuake is a festival of readings of theatrical pieces by diverse voices, each answering the question: what does who I am and where I live have to do with the environment? Three unique EarthQuake performances will livestream from three different continents to bring a message of global unity in the face of environmental crisis. Plays, movement pieces, puppet shows, monologues, spoken word pieces, and videos in English and Hindi by environmentalists and creators representing a diversity of voices, including those of African, Indigenous, Asian and European descent, Kurdish, Arabic and Romani ethnicities and Hindu, Muslim, Christian and Jewish faiths. Together, we will move the Earth!
