The End of the World
Thanksgiving Revival at the Highline Ballroom
Sunday, November 25, 2012 - 1:00pm - 3:00pm
This year's theme: "The End of the World " refers to the book of the same title to-be launched this month by publisher OR Books.
The opposition to the Spectra Pipeline — the proposed entry point at Gansevoort Pier is just 3 blocks from the Highline Ballroom — will be an issue in the comedy routines, sermons and songs presented by Rev billy and the choir. Rev Billy's recent political actions have concentrated on JPMorgan Chase — a top financier of CO2 emissions worldwide.
Choir members have carried tree roots, cat-tails (in order to create lobby swamps) and river stones into bank lobbies across America and the world. "Singing and praying resists bank-caused climate change," says the Rev.
This year's Highline show will focus on the causes and effects of Sandy.
