Race & Climate Change Festival
March 31 - April 11
An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating indefinitely
Spectrum Dance Theater will explore climate change and The Climate Gap throughout its 2019/2020 season. The climate gap refers to a body of data indicating disparities of how climate change impacts various racial, ethnic and socioeconomic groups in the United States. This data shows that racial and ethnic minorities, as well as people in lower socioeconomic statuses, will be more negatively impacted by climate change as it relates to health and economic welfare compared to other populations in the United States.
As the visibility and impacts of climate change increase, its catastrophic effects in/on our communities and our coastal cities, in particular, are inevitable. The question then becomes – how might life be lived in the near future, after humans have adapted? This particular perspective of “adaptation after” will be the artistic point of view for the new dance works and programming for the 2019/2020 Season, specifically the Race & Climate Change Festival.
