­­"Gorgeous footage. Although the visual imagery Ms. Hopkins culled from her voyage through the Arctic is among the greatest pleasures of the show, THIS CLEMENT WORLD also provides consistent allure in Ms. Hopkins’s original songs.

"When she wraps her big, rich, soulful voice around an anthem to the beauty of the natural world or the folly of our disregard for it, the show transcends… Ms. Hopkins is backed by a seven-piece band and a chorus of eight, and the sound they collectively produce resembles the sumptuous, symphonic pop of bands like Arcade Fire, Florence and the Machine, and Sigur Ros."

- Charles Isherwood, The New York Times

­"A feast for the senses. As crisp and breathtaking as an episode of Planet Earth." - Jason Fitzgerald, Backstage

FOUR STARS "A shaggy, stunning cri de coeur. The unhymned resource here is, naturally, Hopkins."-Helen Shaw, TIME OUT NEW YORK ­­

"Extraordinary musical arrangements — the tabernacle-size harmonies hit you like a wall of water. Hopkins' music is bewitching and her visual wizardry is powerful." - New York Magazine


­­­­­This Clement ­World is a fiercely creative and charismatic tribute to our rapidly changing environment, as seen through the prism of Cynthia Hopkins’ deeply personal­ lens and wild cross-disciplinary style. Performed live with a 15-piece chorus and band, This Clement World blends outlandish fiction and original avant-folk songs with Hopkins’ own documentary footage from an Arctic expedition with Cape Farewell, infusing our global climate crisis with humor, poetics and urgency.
