Food Tank: First Ever Fully Interactive Off-Broadway Musical (& It's About Climate Change)

Food Tank and non-profit Tony award-winning non-profit theater company La MaMa are producing Garjana, a first-ever fully interactive off-Broadway musical theatrical experience which tackles climate change and food security. Garjana sits at the nexus of food justice, climate justice, and people-powered change. 

This unique musical theatrical event takes place in an extensively developed narrative universe created by an Emmy, Tony, Oscar, and Grammy award-winning creative and artistic team, including a fully functioning language developed by David Peterson (HBO’s Game of Thrones) and all-original music by Rocky Dawuni (Grammy-nominated Ghanaian afrobeat’s star and U.N. celebrity ambassador). Garjana is being directed by Whitney Mosery (Cirque du Soleil). Garjana is based on a real planet, Kepler 452. We are also consulting with NASA on design elements. 

The entire show runs from June through September at La MaMa’s Ellen Stewart Theatre. We hope to immediately begin touring Garjana thereafter. Hunter College is working with us to design a post-show project to onboard more than 15,000 show attendees as volunteers into the good food movement across 250 non-profit environmental, food, and sustainability organizations in all five boroughs. We will also be collaborating with the NYC DOE to offer more than 2,500 tickets for high schoolers to attend Garjana performances. 

The early reception has been effusive. Garjana workshops benefiting Hurricane Maria victims two years ago in partnership with Feeding America and the World Food Programme USA received joyous receptions from audiences at sold-out events across New York City. Playbill Magazine said it was “about to be New York City’s hottest trend.” 

Since our founding in 2013, Food Tank has cultivated a reputation as a global thought leader, producing high profile events and forums around food activism, environmental sustainability, as well as publishing original reporting and content daily. 

We are looking for volunteers of all kinds however might support and enhance this incredible project.
