via Superhero Clubhouse:

"Mammelephant is a musical epic exploring displacement and identity in the era of climate change through the eyes of the world’s first mammoth-elephant hybrid and the humans confronting rapidly thawing Arctic permafrost. Inspired by the Pleistocene Park geoengineering experiment, the Colossal de-extinction project, and an ancient Sakha song-poem, the play follows the first “mammelephant” as they try to make a hopeful future in a place where everything– knowledge, ancestry, even the ground beneath their feet– is unstable."

Mammelephant played at Mabou Mines from July 21-August 6, 2022
