“Ferver’s performances are so extreme that they sometimes look and feel like exorcism.” — The New Yorker

The wildly tragicomic writer, choreographer, and director Jack Ferver premieres their first full-length work in three years, Is Global Warming Camp? and other forms of theatrical distance for the end of the world, exploring journalistic remove, weaponized theatricality, and the weight of humanity’s global failures. Ferver inhabits the distance of “the queer” to assume a unique narrative vantage point for assessing the mess we’re in.

The performance is set against the glittering backdrop of Marc Swanson’s exhibition A Memorial to Ice at the Dead Deer Disco, on a stage purposely built for Ferver inside the installation.
