Get prepared to witness extraordinary architecture, stunning art and heart winning performances under one roof. This summer UK will get its first fully functioning theater made entirely from recycled and reclaimed materials. The Red Roomwill, a theater company was struck with the idea of this green theater that will be unveiled in Southwark, where it will showcased as part of the London Festival of Theatre.
Dubbed the “Jellyfish Theater”, this sustainable structure will be constructed under the project called “The Oikos Project” by the Red Roomwill in partnership with the Architecture Foundation. On July 3 and July 4, all the visitors and locals can donate their waste material and give a helping hand in the construction. After being showcased as part of the city-wide London Festival for Architecture this July, the theater erected on the Marlborough Playground will then open its doors for a limited six-week season of performances.
The two specially commissioned play premieres that will drive many people to the Jellyfish Theater are Oikos by Simon Wu and Protozoa by Kay Adshead. The plays will explore the way a new sustainable society can flourish in a world altered by climate change. After spreading the green message, the theater designed by Berlin-based architects Kobberling and Kaltwasser will be dismantled in October.
