Today, the sun is red.

Kristen Brown

Theater, Music, Storytelling


Part fever dream and part dramatic essay, “Today, the sun is red” is a meditation on the climate crisis.

The show unfolds as a lyrical monologue told by Kab, a twenty-something-year-old living in a global lockdown. In the year 2029, relentless wildfires destroy landscapes, degrade air quality, and endanger everyday survival. Going outside is a matter of life and death, and the government’s persecution of environmentalist writers only accelerates political tensions. Smoke engulfs the world, and Kab has something to say about it.

Taking place in a lonely apartment, Kab must find the hope in a better tomorrow and find the courage to embark on a new dawn.

Cannonball, produced by Almanac Dance Circus Theatre, is the first and largest independent festival hub of the Philadelphia Fringe that presents risk-taking independent artists in back-to-back performances next to delicious lounge spaces, fostering creative collisions and community conversation.
