The Greenhouse 2019 was the UK’s first ever zero-waste performance space. Built entirely from found and recycled materials, the project harnessed the power of theatre and storytelling to build individual emotional connections with the immediate natural environment. In doing that, we transformed the climate crisis from something unfathomable to something that everyone could see, feel, and ultimately affect. The project empowered individuals, helping them to realise that even tiny actions on their part can have a huge impact in mitigating the climate crisis.
The Greenhouse lives on this year! You can find more information about The Greenhouse 2020, and the project in general, on its website here.
