2009 Earth Matters on Stage Open Call for Proposals

According to a recent email I received, Theresa May and the University of Oregon have announced the 2009 Earth Matters on Stage — An Ecodrama Playwrights Festival & Symposium. May is currently seeking symposium papers and proposals of all shapes and sizes for next year’s EMOS. The symposium will be shaped, according to a recent call for proposals, by the ideas submitted and accepted, so anything is game:

“We welcome creative and innovative proposals for workshops, round-tables, working sessions, installations, or participatory community gatherings that explore, examine, challenge, articulate, or nourish the possibilities of theatre’s response to the environmental crisis in particular, and our ecological situatedness in general.”

“We encourage proposals that go beyond a recitation of ideas or positions, and instead bring presenters and participants together as they engage the driving question of how theatre has or might function as a part of our multiple reciprocal relationships within ecological communities.”

In other words, if you’ve got an idea, they want to hear it.

EMOS invites you all to submit a one page proposal and/or abstract (including type of session and title; your preferred type of space; expected time length; ideal, or maximum number of participants; short bio) via snail mail or email by January 1, 2009 to:

what’s in a color?

"It should be about different kinds of symbols than the color green—wind farms, solar, renewable-energy laboratories, those things that are symbolic of the new energy economy. People think that we overuse the concept of green, and it could become trite in its expression.”
“This idea about green in a lot of people’s minds still conjures up this notion of a fringe or something that’s out-there. It doesn’t inspire this notion of a new America. It just seems more substantive than a color.” - Colorado governor Bill Ritter, Jr. in The New Yorker
