Thank you so much to all those who came out for the warner|shaw benefit Sunday night, Mother, May I? on Sunday! And if you missed it all, don’t fret. No, seriously don’t. You can bring your mother to warner|shaw’s production of Six Seeds: The Persephone Project this June at The Tank AND you can catch up with The POOP Project on the ol’ internet! (Check out my lecture from last Tuesday’s Adult Education below!)
Sunday’s benefit capped off a busy week for The POOP Project, and even Purus get pooped of poo. But you know when sometimes you go, then you do up your belt, clean yourself off (hopefully, not in that order), and head back to the ol’ computeroonie only to hear nature calling once more from South of the Border? This might be one of those times.
The POOP Project is proud to take part this coming Thursday in a work-in-progress showing of Superhero Clubhouse‘s:
This event will feature the first half of the play fully staged, a design presentation, a waste-related ecology chat with Dan Tainow of the Lower East Side Ecology Center and Shawn Shafner of the POOP Project, along with a research-filled lobby display including a waste-themed information and a video from the Center for Sustainable Practice in the Arts.

About Superhero Clubhouse:
Superhero Clubhouse is a society of theater artists engaged in making original plays and events about the natural world via a green and collaborative process. Our experiments involve cultivating an intrinsic relationship between the ideals of ecology and the processes and content of theater. Through our work, we hope to form lasting collaborations with scientists, activists and artists from diverse mediums in order to further develop and define the future of a green and unique theatrical event.
You might have seen us on Earth Day weekend performing kid-written eco-plays at The Bushwick Starr in their inaugural Big Green Theater Festival, or witnessed our renegade disaster-inspired “flash performances” at the 2010 Lenfest Center Open House.
