We live in an age in which human activity has a profound impact on our physical and ecological surroundings. How can we create stories, aesthetics, and spaces of experience to deal with this situation reflexively and critically? What role can the performing arts play in the climate crisis debate? This is the fourth in a series of performative conferences curated by David Weber-Krebs and Jeroen Peeters.
