Multi-award winning author Kim Stanley Robinson (Mars trilogy; Three Californias trilogy; New York 2140) makes a rare New York appearance to join theatre artist and climate activist Julia S. Levine (CLIMATE LENS, Artists Rise Up) for a discussion on how art interrogates the climate crisis, and if art can be a catalyst for change.
Julia S. Levine is a theatre artist and producer who is passionate about collaborative processes of playmaking and exploring the inner-workings of the twenty-first century. She uses theatre to pose questions that ignite dialogue, to interrogate dominant narratives, and to pave the way to a more equitable future for all. Levine graduated summa cum laude from Butler University, with Highest Honors in Theatre and a minor in Anthropology. She writes for the online series Artists and Climate Change, is the Artistic Producer of The Arctic Cycle, and creates new performances about food, climate and justice.
Kim Stanley Robinson is a winner of the Hugo, Nebula, and Locus awards. He is the author of twenty previous books, including the acclaimed Mars trilogy, Forty Signs of Rain, Fifty Degrees Below, Sixty Days and Counting, The Years of Rice and Salt, Antarctica, and 2312. In 2008 he was named a ”Hero of the Environment” by Time magazine, and he recently joined in the Sequoia Parks Foundation’s Artists in the Back Country program. He lives in Davis, California.Buy tickets/get more info now
