Downstage and the Immigrant Council for Arts Innovation Present:
All Good Things Must Begin
A Climate Change Theatre Action Initiative
Exciting Partnership with Downstage Theatre
In addition to this exhilarating event, ICAI is delighted to partner once again with Downstage Theatre, a dynamic force in the performing arts community. Our shared commitment to fostering creative expression and addressing critical global issues through the arts underscores the significance of this collaboration.
Check out international plays from Climate Change Theatre Action 2023! The theme of this year’s selection of short plays is inspired by the journal entry of American science fiction writer Octavia Butler: “All Good Things Must Begin”.
Winning each of science fiction’s highest honours, Octavia Butler was also incredibly prescient, writing about extremism, racial justice, and climate change some 30 years ago. This year's commissioned playwrights are solar punks, envisioning radical pluralistic futures where nature and community thrive.
When: November 17, 2023 - November 19, 2023
Venue: Motel Theatre, Arts Commons
Dive into worlds where successes and failures exist side by side, and where hope, courage and grief overlap.
