light work

For Arcola's new production of Ibsen's An Enemy of the People, the challenge was to light a naturalistic piece of theatre 'using just five kilowatts of energy.'

The Arcola Energy Blog takes you step by step through the measures they took.

As pioneers in the field of low-impact theatre, the team at Arcola - four long miles from the heart of London's West End (above) - must feel a little like Dr Stockmann in the play: 'The ones who are right are a few isolated individuals like me.'

Other 'isolated individuals' have had to take heart from one of Dr Stockmann's other lines: 'The strongest man in the world is he who stands most alone.' But things are changing.
