Sustainability is at the core of my life, and therefore my work. In theatre, as storytellers, we can act on the causes and impacts of climate change and share this with our audiences.
On every show I ask the venue to, at a minimum:
Ensure the building is on a 100% renewable energy tariff to power the lighting rig;
Include a Green Card design meeting and have Sustainability on the agenda for each production meeting;
Use PowerTrack to work out the total power consumption of each show;
Be engaged in open conversation about the sustainability of the production. Particularly having read the Theatre Green Book.
I work with The Conservation Volunteers in my spare time.
I have previously worked with: Sunset Farm, Colorado; Red Hill Farm, California; and Osa Conservation, Costa Rica as a volunteer.
I am vegan.
I am building a vegetable garden to grow my own and compost my food waste.
I buy second hand.
I do not have a car, I love to cycle and ride trains.
Ask me about any of this!
