TMTC Launches GO GREEN Short Plays Promoting Eco-friendly Theater
Go Green is an experimental initiative created by The Movement Theatre Company [TMTC] that functions to produce and perform eco- friendly theatre. This will be a night of new short plays asking the question: What Does It Mean To Go Green? TMTC believes that to truly impact the planet, one must seek out environmentally-friendly options whenever possible.
No paper will be used and each play will be projected on a wall while patrons will be e-delivered programs via text or e-mail. Are you a Go Getter? Come support GO GREEN!If you want more information please check out our website as we announce the plays, directors and actors throughout APRIL.
There is a new scent in the air, an infectious buzz that is sweeping the nation: "Going Green"- the idea of doing ones share to be environmentally conscious. This movement is shifting how we view the world and challenging us to do our part to keep the planet around for future generations. But, beyond the theory how can the methodology actually be put into practice? The Movement Theatre Company [TMTC] is composed of passionate artists called together to enact positive, proactive change in our community. Therefore if going green means asking oneself, "What changes can I make to better the world around me?" Then what can we as a company contribute to this global initiative?
The idea of this event was sparked by a question, "Could there everbe a paper-free reading?" Go Green is our answer. We are using this event to showcase how the green movement manifests itself in our artistry. The notion of a reading implies the need for paper, but it also poses the effects of waste and the killing of trees. TMTC will solidify it s place in the globAl Green initiative with, Go Green - a paper-free event. This reading will showcase new short plays written by 10 emerging playwrights centered around the question: "What does it mean to go green?" Beyond that we, as a company are working to find innovative ways to advertise that do not rely on paper [ie e-mail, projections, street performances]. This is our the first Go Greenevent and we hope to make it an annual examination of how we effect the environment. So join us Wednesday April 29, 2009 at Dixon Place at 7:30p.m. as The Movement Theatre Company celebrates Earth Week.
