HOT IN HERE
Co-produced by Pigfoot and Gate Theatre, commissioned and supported by Camden People's Theatre
A protest. A theatre show. An energy-generating dance party.
"We're fighting because we love so much... We're fighting for the survival of our species. We're fighting for the survival of the most marginalised people, the majority of people, because that's what climate justice is about."
The Gate continues to support some of the UK's most exciting young and early career artists with HOT IN HERE, a co-production with Pigfoot, interrogating the most pressing issue in the world right now, the global climate emergency.
Energetic and urgent, HOT IN HERE was made from interviews with young climate advocates across the globe who are leading campaigns and protecting land at the frontlines of the climate crisis, predominantly in the Global South and nearest the Equator.
Featuring the first energy-harvesting dancefloor in live theatre, HOT IN HERE is about action for international climate justice, and the UK's place within it.
Pigfoot Theatre tell stories about the climate and ecological crisis, with the least carbon impact possible. An Associate Company of English Touring Theatre, Pigfoot 'practises what it preaches' (The Sunday Times) and protests within an industry which, in London alone, has a carbon footprint of 50,000 tonnes a year. Our bike-powered family comedy How To Save A Rock has toured with English Touring Theatre to Northern Stage and Theatre By The Lake, with Battersea Arts Centre and Found in Music, and with support from Sling Low to the Albany, Camden People's Theatre and more. HOT IN HERE (an energy-generating dance party) recently toured England to venues including York Theatre Royal, Contact MCR, and Birmingham MAC.
The company's new show, Hostile Environments, supported by Boundless Theatre's Accelerator programme, will be produced in 2023. Pigfoot have led workshops for organisations including the National Theatre, Southbank Centre, HOME Manchester, and Guildhall School of Speech and Drama.
Full company will be announced shortly.
