The machines

Working with pedal-power specialists Magnificent Revolution, theatre company 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.

These machines have previously been built for other theatre companies, and can be attached to visual displays. Click on the video link below to have a look at Adam from Magnificent Revotion on the unit installed at the Arcola Theatre:
