On July 1, 2021 the new transdisciplinary science communication project ‘AnthropoScenes’ will launch. Funded by the Berlin University Alliance, the so-called ‘Experimental Laboratory’ uses theatrical formats to engage diverse publics on the topic of water in Berlin-Brandenburg. The project is coordinated by the Theater of the Anthropocene and the Integrative Research Institute on Transformations of Human-Environment Systems (IRI THESys) and sees water researchers from the region, including geographers from Adlershof, providing content and developing stage performances together with artists from the Theater of the Anthropocene. Critically, AnthropoScenes will be an open process, whereby scientific content will be created together with different audiences to feed into the performances and research. The project team aims to compile its findings and incorporate them into a game show format that will be presented to an international audience at the Humboldt Laboratory in 2024.
