Global Voices on Theatre and the Climate Crisis

If you’re a theatre-maker who has been directly affected by climate change or any other aspect of the current environmental crisis, we’d like to hear from you!

We want to show the rest of the theatre sector that we too are affected by this emergency, and that we must play our part in becoming truly sustainable.

We’re working with the SBTD’s Sustainable Design Group to gather stories from theatre-makers around the world who have had personal experience of the effects of the ecological crisis. Whether it’s extreme weather, pollution or anything else, if you, your community or your ability to work has been directly affected, please film yourself telling your story and send it to us. We encourage you to drop us a line first, though, to check your idea fits the brief.

Deadline: May 17 (There’s some flexibility with this but please let us know asap.)

Here are two example videos to give you a sense of what we’re after. (Please note that the final versions will have subtitles.)

Penny Chivas describes her experience of fires in Australia and the influence this has had on her work. Penny wishes to acknowledge the Ngunnawal people as the traditional custodians of the land involved in ‘Burnt Out’, the work mentioned in the footage.
Paul Burgess talks about how a production he was working on in the UK was affected by both flooding and air pollution.
