Cynthia Hopkins’s one-woman show, This Clement World, which she performed as a work-in-progress as part of our visual arts exhibition Carbon 13, will have its world premiere at New York’s St. Ann’s Warehouse on February 5 and run for two weeks.

In 2010, Cynthia sailed on a three-week Arctic expedition with Cape Farewell, an experience she calls “life-transforming.” This Clement World is her response to the trip — from the perspectives of several original characters, including a ghost of the past and a visitor from the future, Cynthia weaves fictions with beautiful documentary footage and a 15-member chorus and band, while combing hard-nosed truths for solutions.

Listen to a new song from the show, and buy tickets here.
