On April 22, 2019, we celebrate the 49th Earth Day, with Eco Trippin: Earth Day Edition -- a musical, comical, philosophical inquiry into what has changed for the better, and for the worse, since the first Earth Day in 1970.
Hip-hop / performance art duo Killin H8 combines combines beats, rhymes, monologues and interviews to tackle modern ecological issues -- it's the most thought- and laugh-provoking way to spend your Earth Day evening. As Gothamist puts it, it's "an incredible (and incredibly strange)...look at the most pressing ecological issues of our time."
Just as this year's Earth Day emphasizes the planet's diversity of species, this special edition of Eco Trippin features a panel of activists and thinkers approaching ecology from a diversity of perspectives:
- Janet MacGillivray, J.D., director of The Seeding Sovereignty Project, an environmental justice organization birthed at Standing Rock,
- Kyp Malone, Artist/Musician of TV on the Radio
- Madeleine MacGillivray Wallace, Microplastic and Science Policy Fellow at Seeding Sovereignty
- Chelsea MacMillan, Co-Founder & Director of the Brooklyn Center for Sacred Activism
Also featuring guest performances from Seth Timothy Larsen and Ellis Dodi, and a cypher session, open to all rappers, poets and verbal improvisers present!
