On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evening, Compagnie AccenT and Soif Compagnie presented Gaia Global Circus at The Kitchen in Chelsea, followed by Q&A sessions with the troupe and Prof. Latour.
On Friday, following the presentations, New York Times contributor Laura Collins-Hughes reviewed the show, which can be read at nyti.ms/nyt-gaia. Through Gaia Global Circus, Latour addresses one of “the great questions of ecology: our failure to feel much of anything in the face of the climate crisis,” writes Collins-Hughes. The play, “calls to mind in a visceral way why we need to keep this home of ours healthy.”
Exeunt also reviewed the play saying “Gaïa Global Circus sets the bar high for future endeavors into the growing ‘climate theater’ niche.”
