Carbon Theatre

Residency Dates: Tue 27 Nov - Fri 7 Dec

Carbon Theatre is a new company specialising in producing complex and divergent, free-form theatre. Founded and run by creative producer Courtenay Johnson, Carbon is passionate about working with emerging artists to develop their practice and explore ambitions for sharing their work. Carbon produces female-led theatre that focuses on politics and/or sciences with a humanist core.

Carbon is delighted to be able to develop a multi-sensory performance for young audiences, inspired by women sailing around the world including Dame Ellen McArthur, Dame Naomi James and Laura Dekker and Jeanne Socrates.

The company will explore multisensory ways in which to communicate those inspiring journeys around the world - from the salty sea mist to the tempting taste of pancakes! Using crafts, maps, images and audience interactions they are aiming to create an interactive and exciting piece of theatre.
