Ashden Directory DVD : Six ways to look at climate change and theatre - our online film for 'Earth Matters on Stage'

The Ashden Directory branches out into film-making with our DVD, 'What can be asked? What can be shown? British theatre and performance in the time of climate instability'.

For the film, we asked six people to come up with a question about climate change and performance. We then gave that question to another of the six to answer.

You also can watch each person's contribution as a separate sequence:

Mojisola Adebayo, artist, theatre-maker
responds to Wallace Heim's question,

The film is edited by Adam Clarke and directed by Wallace Heim.

'What can be asked? What can be shown? British theatre and performance in the time of climate instability'

published in 2009

Prompted by wanting to participate in the symposium 'Earth Matters on Stage' at the University of Oregon, but without flying, we hosted a satellite conference session, with the DVD acting as an introduction to the people here participating in that discussion.

The DVD stands alone, too, setting out some of the pressing issues and concerns about theatre-making now.
