About Works & Process at the Guggenheim: American Repertory Theater - Ocean Filibuster
Inside the Senate chamber of a global governing body, Mr. Majority introduces the “End of Ocean Bill,” designed to shrink Earth’s oceans into a more manageable (and marketable) collection of inland seas and lagoons. When the floor is opened for debate, the Ocean arrives to speak in its own defense, and so begins the Human-Ocean showdown. "Ocean Filibuster" draws from myth, stand-up, and science to explore the vast depths crucial to our daily survival. Prior to the American Repertory Theater’s world premiere production, writer Lisa D’Amour, director Katie Pearl, and composer Sxip Shirey discuss the newest music theater experience created by the Obie Award-winning company PearlDamour. Actor Jenn Kidwell, who plays both roles, performs highlights.
Commissioned and developed through a partnership between the American Repertory Theater and Harvard University Center for the Environment.
