This Sinking Island: Performance sets out to raise climate awareness among New Yorkers

New York-based arts collective, The Anthropologists have set out to raise awareness of how climate change may impact the homes of New York residents in their most recent production, This Sinking Island.

Set in a landscape of repurposed material, The Anthropologists’
This Sinking Island uses movement and live music to tell the story of a new York-based family who must leave all they’ve ever known in search of a new home.

The 35-minute performance, which was performed for free in venues across New York last month, was based around sea level rise science and climate refugee testimony. The performance builds a bridge between understanding climate science and imagining a better and more just future.

The Anthropologists is dedicated to the collaborative creation of investigative theatre that inspires action. Rooted in research and community engagement and shaped by contemporary dance and physical theatre techniques, the arts based collective is committed to exploring current social topics from an anthropological perspective in order to break down and unleash cultural discoveries.
