Green & Sustainable

There is no bigger challenge than climate change, with projections of increasing severity predicted over the coming years. We must act decisively and ambitiously to transform the way we live, work - and, of course - make art. We are perfectly positioned to inspire and galvanise change. Collaborating with London’s Donmar Warehouse we’re making two plays about the effects of global warming and produced alongside Julie’s Bicycle (the leading global charity bridging environmental sustainability and the creative industries) to create a new best-practice framework for producing sustainable theatre. We match words with practice - from reusing, recycling or refurbishing sets, costumes and props to swapping single-use plastics for green alternatives. We need a building to match our ambition and incubate our growing environmental practice. It will be a convening of hands, hearts and minds, offering a microcosm of sustainability and marking Wales’ commitment to future generations and cultural leadership.
