Environmental theatre

6 September, 2012 § Leave a comment

For this new production we have been very careful about making sure we are making as many green decisions as possible. Here are some of them:
The wood used to construct the set was from Oxford Wood Recycling, the page frames were made from bamboo one of the most renewable resources on the planet. Some of the costumes were bought in charity shops so re-using rather than making new. The shell for Ahmed the tortoise was made from old cardboard and has two recycled straps. Every scrap piece of fabric was kept and in many cases used. The props were made from some corrugated plastic that I scavenged from an old job. It was designed to fit in a car (which it almost does) for low-emission transport. The blocks used for the show are all re-used, donated by Dinrino Theatre Services. We will be hiring lighting for the new show from them and will be using low-energy LED fixtures to light the show using much less than 13amps which is what can be plugged into a normal plug socket.

There we go
