EXTENDED to March 30, 2023!
Inspired by Dylan Thomas’ Under Milk Wood, The Forever Wave reconceptualizes Thomas’ play for a climate ravaged near-future. Set in a drowned Bay Area, circa 2070, The Forever Wave imagines the survivors of this water-logged world as occupying the tops of hills, individual islands jutting up from a climate-change induced tide that rolled in one day and never rolled out.
What communities will emerge in a future where our systems have collapsed and our “normal” is a historical relic? What can the hilltop-dwellers of the future teach us about ourselves in the now? And what are the things we can start building in order to avoid their fate?
