Making Theatre Sustainable – The Green Book
The most updated Theatres Trust draft ‘Theatre Green Book’ on sustainable productions is available here now https://theatregreenbook.com! This publication is the first stage of an initiative being promoted to encourage theatre companies and theatres who are planning future productions to trial this Sustainable Productions guidance and feedback to them so that the guidance can be further developed, find out how it works in variety of ‘real-world’ settings and hope it can become a shared resource.
Hopefully, those producing theatre productions will find it useful as they begin to think and plan for reopening shows.
Theatre and Dance Northern Ireland is a supporter of the Theatre Green Book. The Theatre Green Book has brought together theatre-makers and sustainability experts to create a common standard for making theatre sustainably.
The Green Book will have three volumes:
• Sustainable Productions
• Sustainable Buildings
• Sustainable Operations.
Sustainable Productions is available now in a beta version for trialling. We encourage theatre-makers to start working with it as they plan re-opening shows, and feed back their experience. Click here to find the Theatre Green Book.
