An Evening at the Ecopolis
An Evening at the Ecopolis: Envisioning a Regenerative City
A multimedia theatrical piece by Jeff Biggers featuring musician Alexa Rose
Free and open to all members of the university and Boone community
Music, stories and a deep passion for the world in which we live—what more could you ask of your Friday night? In "An Evening at the Ecopolis," Jeff Biggers presents a multimedia theatrical piece on envisioning a transition to a "regenerative city" featuring singer-songwriter and Appalachian alumna Alexa Rose. First presented in Iowa City, "Ecopolis" spawned a series of forums, various initiatives, a city proclamation and a forthcoming book by Biggers. He has since been touring a production of "Ecopolis" nationally, adapting the stories to local history and endeavors and incorporating local musicians in each locale. Join us for this inspiring night of sustainability storytelling.
