Sustainability is important for everyone working in design today, but to be sustainable is also often required by your clients. Â What is real sustainability and can the energy saving in theatrical lighting save the world? Exploring what to do, and what not to.
Donyale Werle, who started out as a painter, began to reexamine routine theatre practices after working for 13 months on the set for High Fidelity, a 2006 Broadway musical that closed after only 13 performances, she told American Theatre Magazine in Fall 2012.
Seeing her work trashed seemed a waste in more ways than one.
This session will focus on producingÂ greenerÂ theatre. Donyale Werle has gained much acclaim for her use of salvaged materials in her sets and for her creative designs; she won her recent Tony for Peter and the Starcatcher, whose set was made entirely of recycled materials. Werle serves as pre-production co-chair for the Broadway Green Alliance.
An edible stage will provide the unique space for this performance, which will explore our relationship to gardening in the age of ecological uncertainty and ourÂ broadÂ relationship to nature. You will be invited to plant a seedling, contributing to the space in your own personal way.
The event will unify a temporary, site-specific edible garden with local gardening communities via performance.
Outside of the performance, the space will function as a discursive, enjoyable sitting area and installation which can be enjoyed by the public.
Open to all.
This performance has travelled to World Stage Design 2013 from Australia, the USA, Canada and the UK.
This performance will take place on the college grounds.
