"Permaculture: What's Love Got to Do With It? Lessons from Zazu Dreams" is based on the critically acclaimed 2017 book, Zazu Dreams: Between the Scarab and the Dung Beetle, A Cautionary Fable for the Anthropocene Era. Author, Dr. Cara Judea Alhadeff, and Rob Mies, Founder and Executive Director of the Organization for Bat Conservation, will perform excerpts that challenge how our consumer-addicted convenience-culture coopts “sustainability.” Rooted in environmental science and cross-cultural storytelling, this is a tale of decolonization and climate justice. Big Pharma, Big Oil, and Agribusiness giants stalk planet Earth while the main character, a Sephardic Arab-Jewish boy, confronts environmental racism—learning from symbiotic relationships among humans and within the natural world. This creative non-fiction performance will include live Ladino (Arabic-Hebrew and Spanish) music and lush visuals.
