"The Age of Consequences" screening - Cheyenne @ Atlas Theater

Join the Jackson Hole Center for Global Affairs for a screening of the documentary “The Age of Consequences,” followed by a panel discussion.

The film investigates the impacts of climate change on increased resource scarcity, migration, and conflict through the lens of US national security and global stability. Through unflinching case-study analysis, distinguished admirals, generals, and military veterans take us beyond the headlines of the conflict in Syria, the social unrest of the Arab Spring, the rise of radicalized groups like ISIS, and the European refugee crisis – and lay bare how climate change stressors interact with societal tensions, sparking conflict.  Watch the preview at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ltjua10RFy4&feature=youtu.be

Following the 90-minute film, David Wendt of JHCGA will moderate a discussion with Lt. General Arlen Jameson, USAF (Ret.) and more TBD guests.  The panel discussion will also include questions and comments from the floor.

Read, Rant, Relate: “Madagascar” @ Relative Theatrics Studio, Room 278 in the Laramie Plains Civic Center

Read, Rant, Relate: "Madagascar" @ Relative Theatrics Studio, Room 278 in the Laramie Plains Civic Center

Experience four new pieces of contemporary dramatic literature with Relative Theatrics. Participants will engage directly with modern plays by listening to actor-led readings of the texts, then joining discussions breaking down the thematic elements of the works and their relevance to today’s society.

In November, come discuss JT Rogers’ MadagascarMadagascar is the haunting story of a mysterious disappearance that changes three lives forever.  AT three different periods in time, three Americans find themselves alone, in the same hotel room overlooking the Spanish Steps in Rome: June, a young woman who works as a tour guide of the city’s ancient ruins; Lillian, her wealthy and elegant jet-setting mother; and Nathan, a rumpled university economist and best friend of Lillian’s famous deceased husband.  They each tell their individual story of how and why they are here.  Their relationship to each other, what this room means to them, and why they have been called to it slowly reveal themselves.  Their stories spill out, weave back and forth–each contradicting, clarifying, deepening what the others say–becoming strands of one gripping and disquieting tale.  Themes: reflection, recrimination and regret, isolation and suicide.

As does everybody in Jackson, she wears many hats: yoga instructor, academic tutor, and a story-teller in her own right.

Peter Aguero is an award-winning story-teller, who teaches workshops at universities around the country, hosts The Moth radio hour on National Public Radio, has worked with community story-telling programs for the under-served in NYC, and tells his own stories around North America to packed audiences. He is a Moth GrandSLAM champion. Although he has no academic degree, his prowess as a story-teller places him at the forefront of his craft. Born in New Jersey in 1976, he currently lives in Brooklyn where he sings in a rock band. He is married.
