Dramatic Impact

Exploring the potential of sustainable development in theatre through presentations, performances and debate.
Saturday 09 March


Dramatic Impact aims to introduce theatre makers and theatre goers alike to latest developments in environmentally friendly technologies in the arts - ranging from technical equipment to everyday maintenance.

Featuring experts championing environmentally friendly systems and technologies in Scotland and wider, new writing from the Edinburgh University Theatre Company, an open debate discussion and organic food provided by our sponsors, Union of Genius, the festival seeks to improve our understanding of green theatre production.

Sustainability is not a lofty goal - you can help us produce greener, safer theatre simply by recycling your ticket!
