LIGHTING THE WAY:
A series of short works in collaboration with CLIMATE CHANGE THEATRE ACTION
Presented in collaboration with Climate Change Theatre Action, a worldwide performance series that explores humanity’s legacy in the natural world, DramaDogs, a Theater Company presents Lighting the Way. These six short plays, presented in partnership with the Santa Barbara Public Library, invite us to participate in a global conversation about our environment and the importance of conservation.
Over the past five years, DramaDogs and the SB Library have partnered to present many theatrical projects, including original theater pieces that align with the book club’s literary themes and creative interpretations of books from the Santa Barbara Reads series. The library is dedicated to educating, captivating, and connecting the community through literature, art, and performance.
The cycle of Climate Change Theatre Action 2020 plays began last month all over the world, coinciding with the United Nations COP (Conference of the Parties) meetings. These works celebrate the beauty of our planet while inspiring audiences to strive for a cleaner future. Lighting the Way is part of DramaDogs’ Relevant Action program, which addresses current social issues through the medium of theatre and experience-based art.
Lighting the Way is directed by DramaDogs’ Artistic Director, Ken Gilbert, and features pieces by Caridad Svich, Madeline Sayet, Marcia Johnson, Nathan Yungerberg, Kamil Haque, and Katie Pearl. It stars Hannah Brudney, Logan Folz, Diva Johnson, Meredith McMinn, and Karly Kuntz. Original Music Design by Josh Jenkins.
This Project is funded in part by the Community Arts Grant Program using Funds provided by the City of Santa Barbara in partnership with the Santa Barbara County Arts Commission.
