Green Stages

Royal Court Theatre, 2004Today, I want to share a thought-provoking video. It is a panel discussion from the Royal Court Theatre in London entitled Can Theatre Ever Be Green. Part of a larger Day of Action on climate change, the theatre’s spaces, including the stage, the bar and the bookshop, were taken over by climatologists, environmentalists and other experts exploring how we might fight climate change as artists, audiences and human beings. This is connected with the performance of 2071 which I wrote about in my recent post Willing To Speak Truth To Power. In the discussion, the panel analyse the responsibility to climate change in their work and discuss more environmentally friendly ways of producing theatre.

.

The speakers are Natalie Abrahami (Theatre Director), Natasha Chivers (Lighting Designer), Alison Tickell (CEO, Julie’s Bicycle) Ben Todd (Executive Director, Arcola Theatre) and Paul Handley (Production Manager, Chair).

Give it a view. As theatre makers, it will really make you think.
