“a shaggy, stunning cri de coeur “- Time Out NY

 

“With Jeff Sugg’s clean design and D. J. Mendel’s smooth direction, this “one woman show” bravely expands the genre.” - Stage and Cinema

This Clement World is a fiercely creative and charismatic tribute to our rapidly changing environment, as seen through the prism of Cynthia Hopkins’ deeply personal lens and wild cross-disciplinary style. Performed live with a 15-piece chorus and band, This Clement World blends outlandish fiction and original avant-folk songs with Hopkins’ own documentary footage from an Arctic expedition with Cape Farewell, infusing our global climate crisis with humour, poetics and urgency.
