  • SOON IS NOW is an annual immersive day of climate theater, art and activism set in Scenic Hudson's Long Dock Park, a former industrial site and brownfield transformed into an ecologically sustainable park on the Hudson River in Beacon, NY. This site was originally the territory of the Wappinger, Mohican and Munsee peoples, in a region with a vital history of environmental activism rooted in Scenic Hudson's fight to save Storm King Mountain from industry and Pete Seeger's fight for an unpolluted Hudson River.

    SOON IS NOW stages performances throughout this riverfront park as a curated tour for the viewer, with nature as backdrop and collaborator. Based on the belief that art can reach the hearts and minds of audiences on this most overwhelming challenge of our time, SOON IS NOW invites the public into this space of evocative climate theater and art to inspire collective activism on climate change and its impacts in our region.

  • Founder and Director: Eve Morgenstern

  • Produced by Eve Morgenstern, Connie Hall and Brian Mendes
