Saving the world through sustainable handstands and eco friendly clown noses.
A physical art project for planet earth initiated by Abigael Rydtun Winsvold and Victoria Sophie Gulliksen! A4C works as an umbrella organisation with the goal of involving everybody interested arts and environmentalism.
The seed of Acting for Climate was planted in Norway in 2015 by Abigael Winsvold and Victoria Gulliksen, wanting to use their profession as artists to inspire action for a sustainable future. Now, we are a company creating and touring our own performances, and a growing network of people, artists and activists that nurture collaboration for sustainability.
We are inspired by Piet Hein’s definition of art as ”the solution to the problems that cannot be formulated clearly before being resolved”. As artists we have the opportunity and responsibility to inspire action, joy and change.
The Acting for Climate tree is growing, both as a professional contemporary circus and performing arts company, with our branches in Europe and Montréal, and as a community platform for arts and sustainability.
We intend to strengthen and expand global networks of action through interaction with local artists and activist. Acting for Climate is not just a group of performers, it is a mindset and a movement.
Acting for Climate will always strive towards developing the art field, through cross-disciplinary work, and challenging the methods and expressions of contemporary performing arts.
