Improv meets Environmental Sciences

Ice melting, waters rising, stratospheric ozone depletion, extreme heatwaves, droughts, floods, loss of biodiversity and the list continues.
About the Show

In a joint effort to foster a realistic portrayal of scientists as relatable individuals, the improvisers will develop a performance with and about researchers: they engaged with the very content of their work (their research presentation, their published material, their lab routine, etc.). At the same time, the show tackled current trends and challenges in the world of modern research (publish and perish culture, mediatization of science, funding struggles, p-hacking, etc.).

The show is designed to enhance public access to scientific information and scientists, with the aim of improving public confidence and stimulating curiosity about the environment and science in general.

 

We use improvised theater as a medium to engage our audience with some of the latest scientific research in environmental science.
