You’ve been hacked! But you’ve been hacked since you first set up an email account or created a digital scan of your social security card or stepped into a room with cameras. Digital technology has evolved from a set of tools to an invisible extension of the human body. It is difficult to avoid “plugging in” to the digital landscape every hour of every day. Entertainment, banking, maps, relationships, car rides, communication, and so many other fundamental elements of life depend on technology. Can you escape the digital rabbit hole?

Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground

Two golden phonograph records containing images and audio from Earth were launched into space in 1977 in the hopes that they may one day reach extraterrestrial life. It was a message in a bottle sent off into the cosmos. In the year 4040, one of the Voyager Golden Records reaches a dying planet, and its inhabitants head out to find where it came from: Earth. What will our planet look like in 2000 years? And if all that survived of our modern civilization were a handful of songs and photos stored on a golden record, what would someone make of how we lived, and of what we considered to be most important? What will be our legacy?

It’s impossible to escape the dire warnings about our planet’s health and future coming from scientists and conservationists around the world. Yet, not everyone agrees that the Earth is experiencing a climate crisis. Like most contemporary issues in the United States, the debate over the human impact on the environment has divided individuals and organizations into warring camps. The emotional toll of the debate serves as a backdrop to the ecological disruption and loss people working and living on the front lines of climate change experience. Where do we go from here?

H2O, Cry Havoc’s fourth documentary/verbatim theatre piece created from interviews and other source material, will explore human impact on the environment - particularly as it affects water systems - and the work of those attempting to mitigate the effects of climate change. H2O is a recipient of a grant from the TACA New Works Fund.
