PUSH LAB – Carbon Neutral Theatre Making with Pigfoot Theatre

Interested in making theatre which doesn’t damage the planet? This is a practical workshop for any theatre-maker keen to create theatre without a carbon footprint. You’ll explore exercises designed to bring sustainable practices into your theatre-making process – from performer-led live sound design, to making the most out of upcycled objects. You’ll even look at powering your show by bicycle! This session will also include time to experiment with a bike-generator on your own terms.

The workshop will run from 10am-1pm.

Free for lunch (1-2pm)? stay with us after the workshop for a free buffet lunch and get to know other members of the group.
