A work-in-progress presentation of a
musical performance piece addressing the global climate crisis with poetic urgency, performed by Cynthia Hopkins
, designed by Jeff Sugg
, and directed by DJ Mendel
.This Clement World
is a live performance-cum-documentary film incorporating idiosyncratic fiction and original avant-folk orchestral songs, conveying vital information on the climate crisis in a deeply personal manner. Like previous works by Hopkins and her collaborators, this musical performance work takes an innovative approach to narrative through the integration of a variety of media including music, text, movement, visual display, and design.
This program is presented in conjunction with the exhibition U-n-f-o-l-d: A Cultural Response to Climate Change. For more information, visit www.newschool.edu/parsons/sjdc
