THE ANIMAL IN QUESTION
By Ellie Sammer
Several generations of women talk to Ellie Sammer about their experience of the Climate Crisis. Aged 8 to 83, there is no one consistent point of view about a phenomenon that is constant.
Ellie performs the verbatim monologues as a compelling conduit: she is both questioner, subject, and interpreter. She becomes one body and many bodies. One mind and many minds. It’s a neat metaphor for the universality of Climate Change. It’s here, no matter who, what, or where we are.
