Embedded into Einstein Research Unit "CliWaC", the project AnthropoScenes works at the intersection of transdisciplinary research and knowledge exchange to make sustainable water futures a public matter of concern. The project is funded under the Excellence Strategy of the Federal Government and the Länder by the Berlin University Alliance (BUA) as an experimental science communication initiative.

Over the next three years, AnthropoScenes will develop processes that entwine theatre and science through a close collaboration with partners at the Freie Universität Berlin (FU), Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (HU) and Technische Universität Berlin (TU), as well as the Theatre of the Anthropocene, the Museum for Natural History, the Humboldt Labor.

Collaborative methods such as participatory salons, theater pop-ups, staged productions and performances, digital and online platforms, as well as a grand-finale game show will take place from 2021-202024. The objective is not only to broaden the knowledge and experience base from which to co-produce sustainable water futures, but to engage a wide range of publics in Berlin and Brandenburg in the transformations of nature-culture relations in the Anthropocene. The AnthropoScenes novel and unique approach will be continuously evaluated and aims to be transferable to other fields of social-ecological research and beyond.
