Context & Conversation: Human/Nature, inspired by Little Shop of Horrors

Domesticated and disciplined into doing our bidding, the natural world awaits a chance to reassert its power, to overrun the man-made boundaries and borders we arrogantly thought would keep us safe. After decades of relying on antibiotics to wipe out once-fatal diseases, we now know that our careless use of them has led to the development of new, untreatable pathogens, which threaten our social order and our very lives.  Join us for a conversation with artists, scholars, and community practitioners to consider the unfolding consequences we now face, and what it means to live in their shadow.

Reservations are encouraged, please RSVP to events@trinityrep.com (with “Little Shop C&C” in the subject line) indicating the number of seats you would like.

Context & Conversation is a free, public discussion series co-produced and co-presented by Trinity Repertory Company and Providence Public Library, along with community partners specially chosen for each production. The conversation is inspired by the production at Trinity Rep, but is not dependent upon it; you don’t need to see the production to attend and participate in a Context & Conversation event.
