The climate is changing and the time to act is now. 


Theatre has an important role to play in galvanizing the public to take individual and collective action through storytelling. Through a series of short play readings followed by a panel discussion from industry experts, this event aims to provoke thoughtful discussion and reflection on the issues of climate change: how these issues directly relate to water and how artists tackle these themes, both their work and their personal lives.


Featuring original short play readings by Columbia playwrights Kanika Vaish '22, Greg Nanni '21 and Zizi Majid '20, and by international artists Caridad Svich and Peterson Toscano.


Produced by Philippa Kane '20 (Theatre Management & Producing), Rebecca Miller-Kratzer '21 (Directing) & Jonathan Seinen '20 (Directing).


Presented by Climate Change Theatre Action, Columbia University School of the Arts, Theatre Program, and Columbia University, the Year of Water.
