ABOUT VOICES OF THE EARTH
Compiled by Rush Rehm and Charles Junkerman, TAPS’s Fall Second Stage Voices of the Earth deals with the troubled relationship between humans and the natural world. Along with powerful wilderness images and soundscapes, the staged reading features environmental pioneers (Muir, Carson, Stegner), great nature writers (Thoreau, Snyder, Abbey), playwrights who turn to the environment for inspiration (Sophocles, Chekhov, O’Neill), native American voices (Crowfoot, Chief Luther Standing Bear, Walking Buffalo), poets who honor the earth (Li Po, Rumi, Neruda, Levertov, Oliver, Lorde), environmental activists (Mendes, Saro-wiwa, Maathai, Goodall, McKibben), climate change deniers who insist we face no crisis (who could these be?), and scientists who know better. Voices of the Earth brings home the threat that looms, even as it lifts the spirit and calls us to action.
