Dossier: Climate Change and the Decolonized Future of Theatre

Nicholson-Sanz, Michelle, Woynarski, Lisa Christine, Ong, Adelina, Beer, Tanja, Beaupark, Stephanie, Winn-Lenetsky, Jonah and Tangen, Rulan (2020) Dossier: Climate Change and the Decolonized Future of Theatre. Theatre Research International, 45 (2). pp. 179-208. ISSN 0307-8833


This dossier opens up a set of questions about what theatre and performance can do and be in a climate-changed future. Through a series of practice snapshots the authors suggest a diversity of responses to decolonizing and environmental justice issues in and through theatre and performance. These practices include the climate-fiction film The Wandering Earth, which prompts questions about what decolonizing means for China and the impact of climate chaos on the mental well-being of young people; The Living Pavilion, an Australian Indigenous-led project that created a biodiverse event space showcasing Indigenous art making; Dancing Earth Indigenous dance company who use dance as a way to engage Indigenous ecological thinking and Indigenous futurity; water rituals in the Andes of Peru that problematize water policy and ethnic boundaries.
