Saturday, April 21, 1 p.m.—RUTLAND— 350Vermont and In Tandem Arts are hosting ClimateAct: A Participatory Play Reading in Rutland on Saturday, April 21 at 77 Gallery, 77 Grove St., Rutland. The event is a theater workshop and forum for dialogue in tandem with a participatory reading of short plays. Actors will choose from dramatic, experimental, and/or comedic pieces to perform sight unseen. Viewers will gain perspective on issues related to climate change through exposure to cultural vantage points from around the globe. Actors (and curious newbies – no experience necessary!) should arrive at 1 p.m. to prepare for the reading. The general public is invited to come at 3 p.m. There will be a casual potluck to follow.
Curated by In Tandem Arts, the plays are selected from a collection of 50 original works that address an aspect of climate change by playwrights from 25 different cultures. This event is suitable for adults and youth in high school or older.
Admission is by sliding scale donation: $5 students and low-income, $10 general, and $15 or $20 for those that are able to help cover costs for others.
