How Amazonia came to London this Christmas

Two years ago, RSA Arts and Ecology began supporting a multi-disciplinary collaboration with the Young Vic. Inspired by the work of the unionist and conservationist Chico Mendes, Amazônia began with a journey by the Young Vic’s artistic director to Brazil. It reaches a celebratory climax this winter with a magnificent children’s show at the Young Vic by Colin Teevan and Paul Heritage. Amazonia’s producer, Debra Hauer talks us through the extraordinary history of the project.
