NOW Magazine – Yes, you can laugh at the climate crisis

Cynthia Hopkins’s one-woman show serves up music, images, laughs and lots of smarts – What happens when you place a post-modern musical performance artist on a 100 year old Arctic schooner nestled amongst glaciers and climate scientists for three weeks? You get This Clement World, a stirring, quirkily transcendent live documentary / one woman show with a fiercely personal, poetic, and, at times, hilarious take on the climate crisis.

This Clement World

This Clement World is a fiercely creative and charismatic tribute to our rapidly changing environment, as seen through the prism of Cynthia Hopkins’ deeply personal lens and wild cross-disciplinary style. Performed live with a 15-piece chorus and band, This Clement World blends outlandish fiction and original avant-folk songs with Hopkins’ own documentary footage from an Arctic expedition with Cape Farewell, infusing our global climate crisis with humour, poetics and urgency.
