    Theatre and Climate Change

    For the past 5 years LIFT has been actively engaged in working in partnership with European artists and producers to commission and produce theatre and performance that responds to the most urgent issue of our time: climate change.

    This half day event brought together artists and producers from across Europe to examine some of the most ground-breaking theatre and climate change projects recently produced across Europe. Featuring lectures, artistic presentations and discussion this event challenged us to seriously consider our response to the issue.


    Chaired by Judith Knight (Artsadmin), contributers included artists Patricia Portela (Portugal) and Anna Mendelssohn (Austria), Lucy Neal (Co-Founder of LIFT and co-chair of Transition Town Tooting) and Ben Todd (Executive Director of The Arcola Theatre). The event also featured a performance of White Rabbit Red Rabbit by Ania Obolewicz.
