Artistic Director’s Welcome

Welcome to Ocean Filibuster!

This production grows from a collaboration between A.R.T. and the Harvard University Center for the Environment (HUCE). Several years ago, HUCE Director Dan Schrag approached me, asking how the arts might be able to depict the reality of the climate crisis in ways that speak to the heart and the imagination. We committed to a joint commissioning program, where theater artists would be invited to work directly with HUCE scientists and scholars while creating new pieces about the changing climate.

One of the first teams to participate in this commission series is PearlDamour. The brainchild of playwright Lisa D’Amour and director Katie Pearl, this Obie Award-winning theater company creates spectacular, interdisciplinary works—including previous pieces How to Build a Forest (created with visual artist Shawn Hall) and Lost in the Meadow (premiered in Philadelphia’s Longwood Botanical Garden). Katie and Lisa have fully embraced the opportunity to collaborate with HUCE, engaging in deep conversation with oceanographers, marine biologists, and other researchers during their creative process.

We are thrilled to welcome acclaimed performer Jennifer Kidwell to Cambridge for her A.R.T. debut, performing as both Ocean and Mr. Majority. In the creation of this show, PearlDamour has collaborated closely with composer Sxip Shirey and a team of innovative designers to invite the ocean onstage and into the entire theater. We are also grateful to our community partners on this production. Bow Seat Ocean Awareness Programs, Conservation Law Foundation, and Mass Audubon have all been integral in connecting this show to ongoing efforts to protect the waterways sustaining Boston and the Massachusetts Bay. Learn more about these organizations and their current projects both in the theater’s lobby and during the show’s interactive intermission and in the digital program below.

I’m thrilled you’ve joined us for this world-premiere production that invites us to reimagine our relationship with the ocean.
