LIU Brooklyn – School of Arts and Communication, Performing Arts Department, Theatre Program Speaker Series, in association with The John P. McGrath Fund and the Gender Studies Program present:

Shawn Shafner and The People’s Own Organic Power Project in ‘How the Potty Trained Us’ – created and performed by Shawn Shafner

What if the solution to climate change, world peace, and self-love was the one thing no one wanted to talk about?

Award-winning taboo-breaker Shawn Shafner (The Puru) brings his potty mouth to LIU Brooklyn. Part stand-up comedy, part TED Talk, part character shifting solo theater, together we’ll unearth the origins of our doody dis-ease, and expose how current sanitary practices threaten our health, environment, and 40% of the world still living without safe toilets.

Shawn Shafner is an artist, educator and activist and creator of The People’s Own Organic Power Project (POOP). He has catalyzed conversation about sustainable sanitation from NYC’s largest wastewater treatment plant to the United Nations. Among his major works for POOP, Shawn’s solo show ‘An Inconvenient Poop’ was a ‘Time Out New York’ Critic’s Pick and won him the 2015 New York International Fringe Festival Award for overall excellence in Solo Performance.
