BEARS // POWDER KEG
THE PLANET IS DECAYING AT A STEADY RATE. GLACIERS ARE COLLAPSING AS CROPS ARE DRYING UP, AND THE WORLD GETS WARMER EVERY DAY.
BEARS is a self-destructive, visceral excavation of our role in climate change.
Creating the designs with the mindset of lowering the carbon footprint of theatre, the costumes were created with a mixture of hand woven 100% natural materials and are fully biodegradable. The set was built completely out of reused/recycled materials.
The performances are totally committed throughout, and the design is great, particularly the costumes - British Theatre Guide
