Exploring Climate Change Through Art (REDCAT)

on Wednesday, Oct. 16th

Alpert Award-winning multidisciplinary artist Cynthia Hopkins' latest work "This Clement World" comes to Los Angeles' REDCAT next week with an interesting pedigree.

The organization Cape Farewell–which bills itself as "the cultural response to climate change–sent Hopkins through the arctic seas on a fortnight long trip.

What Hopkins brings back is being described as "theatrical and musical anthem to the fragile earth." Hopkins is known for pulling together disparate elements–moving image, avant-folk music, and narrative–to create works that bridge the gap between the personal and the universal. In this case the theme is addictions, both Hopkins' own and the West's addiction to fossil fuels.

This aligns well with Cape Farewell's mission of bringing artists and scientists together to shape the discussion on climate change.

"This Clement World" will hit the Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater stage on October 24th and run only through the 27th. It is next scheduled to emerge in 2014 in Toronto as part of Cape Farewell’s Carbon 14: Climate is Culture Festival.
