Low Carbon Theatre

Working with pedal-power specialists Magnificent Revolution, fanSHEN have customised four gym machines so that instead of requiring power to function, someone using them to work out will generate electricity – an amazing untapped source of energy! The machines will link to an ultra-capacitor, in which the electricity will be stored. The ultra-capacitor will then be transported to the performance venue and used to power the fanSHEN’s theatre production of a new absurdist comedy , Cheese.

Have a look within this section to read all about this project, and be sure to look at Other Resources for a variety of information on green energy and sustainability within the theatre world. For more on information on the arts more broadly and sustainability/climate concerns, how the arts might work to affect change, and for information on energy, the environment and sustainability check out the ‘Energy-environment-art’ section here.
