Ecodramaturgy is a critical framework for making and studying theatre. It encompasses environmental themes as well as sustainable producing practices. Una Chaudhuri and Theresa May write that humanist theatre asks, "who are we?" while ecological theatre asks "where are we?" Ecodrama seeks to break down binaries between nature and culture, hope and despair, the individual and the community.
Ecodramaturgy is an actively anti-racist, anti-sexist approach that centers gender inclusivity, accessibility, and Indigeneity. Applying a climate justice lens to the embodied practice of theatre making requires an intersectional approach to addressing the climate crisis, environmental racism, wealth inequality, and other forms of oppression.
