YOUR OPTIMISM IS NOT REQUIRED

Children will get older.
Parenting them will be complicated.
The climate around here will change.
Some people will suffer.
A just world is possible, today, and tomorrow.

Team Sunshine Performance Corporation presents an early look into its latest piece: a father-daughter duet, their annual camping trip, a moment around a campfire suspended in time, a consideration of parenting and being parented in the face of planetary crisis, an invitation to share s’mores.

Inspired by the work of Joanna Macy, Robin Wall-Kimmerer, Adrienne Maree Brown, and many others.

Created by: Alex Torra, Rachel Camp, Jackie Soro, Benjamin Camp, and Makoto Hirano.

Reserve your seat today for work in progress showings of Team Sunshine’s latest work, YOUR OPTIMISM IS NOT REQUIRED, developed during a pandemic and presented outdoors at Bartram’s Garden.
