Theatre with Purpose for Dialogue about Fracking

22 Feb

Strike Anywhere (SA) is an ensemble of actors, musicians, dancers and visual artists that creates powerful works to raise awareness about issues that affect people and the environment. Their piece “Same River” is an interdisciplinary performance built upon interviews with members of a community about water.

According to their website, performers of Strike Anywhere “collaborate through an ensemble-based, improvisational process to create politically-charged, original works that addresses socially relevant issues. The permanent ensemble is comprised of world-class musicians, dancers, visual artists and actors.”

Fracking Affects the Community in Different Ways

David L’Heureux, Senior Editor at Rodale News, wrote a piece, “Fracking Takes Center Stage in New York Show,” about the New York-based performance group, Strike Anywhere and their upcoming performances of their show, Same River, which deals with the controversial issue of fracking. Fracking is a technique used by Oil and Gas Companies that forces chemicals and water into the ground to bring out possible gas reserves. The theatre piece addresses the potential environmental degradation to water resources as a result of the fracking process.

The UN News Centre has useful articles that allow the public to track what each nation is doing regarding its pledges on climate change agreements:

The Nobel Peace Prize-winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has found that to stave off the worst effects of climate change, industrialized countries must slash greenhouse gas emissions by 25 to 40 per cent from 1990 levels by 2020, and that global emissions must be halved by 2050. (from UN News Centre, Dec. 11 2009)

The United States current Climate Change pledge on greenhouse gases:

-17% in 2020; 83% in 2050 based on 2005 levels

-3% in 2020 based on 1990 levels

China PR current Climate Change pledge on greenhouse gases:

Reduce the intensity of carbon dioxide emissions per unit of GDP in 2020 by 40 to 45 percent compared with the level of 2005.

India’s current Climate Change pledge on greenhouse gases:

20% to 25% reduction in emission intensity between 2005 and 2020.

Who suffers because of the devastation of Climate Change?

The poor and especially developing countries like Ghana suffer from the ravages of climate change. We are all interconnected and developed countries like the United States must assist other nations in improving their standards of living in ways that do not increase the devastation of climate change.

Tug on anything at all and you’ll find it connected to everything else in the universe.
John Muir

We have a stake in one another … what binds us together is greater than what drives us apart, and … if enough people believe in the truth of that proposition and act on it, then we might not solve every problem, but we can get something meaningful done for the people with whom we share this Earth. ~ President Barack Obama
