Tenderfoot Theatre’s debut show IMPACT was created as part of our in-house residency at the Chapel,
Ormskirk Arts House. The show was set on an 800-litre bed of natural material, including sand, earth, bark, and water, and followed the story of our planet from conception to narrowly avoided destruction, as told through a bedtime story to our future children. An immersive, sensory experience, IMPACT brought together our community in the research, development, and even live improvising of the show to create a collective encounter with our natural world. IMPACT was developed as part of the Climate Change Theatre Action Festival 2021, a global celebration of ecotheatre and climate activism.
