Despite the challenges of creating and performing live theatre during a global pandemic our show Love Letters to a Liveable Future was finally realised at the Cambridge Junction across two brilliant hot summer nights in July 2021.
For METIS this was the latest iteration of our ongoing work to Imagine Otherwise. Over several years through research, collaboration and performance work we have been imagining alternatives to the current global economic order, in the context of climate change and ecological collapse. Through this process we have developed some powerful tools and techniques to stimulate the imagination and shift mindsets. And now we want to share them.
As a performing arts company our interaction with the outside world usually happens in the theatre. But our ambition and drive to help create change goes way beyond it.
That’s why we’re inviting business leaders, consultants and coaches who share our ambition to experience the tools for ‘imagining otherwise’ first hand. To explore whether they are useful for their own context. And to borrow or adapt them to use in their own work or practice.
Zoë Svendsen is a lecturer in Drama and Performance at the University of Cambridge and creative director of METIS – a UK performing arts company creating interdisciplinary performance projects through rigorous research.more about metis
We only have space for a handful of additional participants but please drop us a line to express your interest. We’re especially keen to hear from people who work with large organisations and can influence their approach to the future realities of climate change.
(If you can’t make the date please get in touch anyway – we’d love to hear from you and keep in touch about future iterations of the project.)Get in touch with Louise Ash, our event producer
