TRAVEL & ENTERTAINMENT: Women’s History Month at The Marsh Continues with Heather Harpham’s “Burning”

Feb 20, 2021
The Marsh San Francisco continues its Women’s History Month celebration throughout March with Heather Harpham’s highly kinetic, semi-comic romp about climate change, “BURNING.” Using movement, song, monologue, and other otherworldly images, this work roams through the landscapes of climate change where comedy, tragedy, activism, and cautious optimism collide. From Hurricane Sandy to apocalyptic movie references, NPR’s narcoleptic effect, and the countless trivial tasks that preoccupy the world while Rome burns, Harpham delves into how the planet is flailing to cope. Following the performance, Harpham will join Solo Arts Heal host Gail Schickele to discuss raising awareness around this issue, and how changes in attitude and behavior can help our looming world crisis.

Presented as part of the MarshStream Solo Arts Heal series, “BURNING” will be streamed 7:30pm, Wednesday, March 17. For more information, the public may visit www.themarsh.org/marshstream.

Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, Heather Harpham is a writer and theater artist now based in New York. Her work has been presented at venues across the US and internationally, including the Kathmandu International Theater Festival in Nepal and the NOTAFE Festival in Estonia.

The Marsh celebrates Women’s History Month throughout March, launching with Dipti Mehta’s “HONOUR: Confessions of a Mumbai Courtesan” (March 3) and continuing with a collection of thrilling virtual performances by female performers, including acclaimed mezzo-soprano Hai-Ting Chinn’s eclectic musical science show “Science Fair: An Opera with Experiments” (March 6), Helen Stoltzfus’s extraordinary “Dispatches from the Great Burning: What My Mennonite Ancestors and the Gobi Bear Taught Me About Surviving the Climate Emergency” (March 13), Heather Harpham’s semi-comic romp about climate change “Burning” (March 17), and others to be announced.

In addition, The Marsh Founder/Artistic Director Weisman will interview performers Hai-Ting Chinn (March 4), Helen Stoltzfus (March 11), and Sarika Dagar (March 18) as part of Stephanie’s MarshStream series. The Monday Night MarshStream series will also highlight works by women, including March performances by Elizabeth Appell, Dorothy Richman, Linda Joy, and Nicole Azalee Danielle. More information about upcoming shows can be found at www.themarsh.org/marshstream.
