Elements of Change

Elements is a journey to understand our past and rebirth our future, using the myth of the Hindu trinity – Brahma as creator, Vishnu as Preserver and Shiva as Destroyer – and Tandav, the dance of destruction, the suppression of ignorance and the cosmic balance.

Inspired by art installations, performance art and classical traditions of India, The Climate Change Project seeks to educate and inspire young audiences by creating an experience uniquely tailored to be performed in a school, a theatre and/or a community center. The performance takes students from the ocean to the jungle to the desert, all along introducing them to monsters of climate change. As students find actions that can defeat these monsters, they can find the superhero changemaker in themselves and learn how to become stewards of the planet.
