The first ever Globesity Festival: Hunger Strike Theatre takes place at New York City's Theatre for the New City. This multi-disciplinary event was created and produced by Australian filmmaker Robert Mac, along with festival artistic director and legendary performance artist Penny Arcade, and associate artistic director Michael Premo. Together, they have organized a week of performances, speakers and panel discussions committed to raising awareness of, and sharing solutions to, the dangers of Globesity.
"Globesity" is the overconsumption of all natural elements that sustain life on Earth - some of the most valuable being water, minerals, oil and food. America is suffering from a massive imbalance between what we consume and what we produce. According to Forbes, we are currently the fattest nation in the developed world, and while our nation makes up just 5% of the world's population, we consume 25% of the world's energy resources.
