Drowning NYC

Drowning NYC

Paolo Cirio (Italy)


A cross-media storytelling project, Drowning NYC investigates audience responses to stories about the effects on urban populations of rising sea levels caused by global climate change. 


Networked media are mobilized against mass media to question reality perception through theatrical and cinematic forms that combine pedagogy and activism. The project draws upon immersive and participatory practices of recombinant fiction in order to facilitate tactical activism with dramatic purpose.
