An ambient 10-minute video loop is based on NASA’s iconic “Blue Marble” image. Tweets commenting on the ‘crazy’ weather being experienced in different parts of the world appear and disappear with the cumulative effect being rather troubling.

This Clement World

This Clement World is a fiercely creative and charismatic tribute to our rapidly changing environment, as seen through the prism of Cynthia Hopkins’ deeply personal lens and wild cross-disciplinary style. Performed live with a 15-piece chorus and band, This Clement World blends outlandish fiction and original avant-folk songs with Hopkins’ own documentary footage from an Arctic expedition with Cape Farewell, infusing our global climate crisis with humour, poetics and urgency.
