London’s VAULT Festival 2020: How To Save A Rock by Pigfoot (Preview)
LONDON – Climate change is very real, but how do we continue to be ok in the face of impending doom? At the VAULT Festival 2020, Pigfoot presents How To Save A Rock, a multi award-winning climate-change musical comedy about how to still have hope, powered by a bicycle cycled live on stage.
Directed by Bea Udale-Smith, and written by Alex Rugman and Conky Kampfner, How To Save A Rock begins with Coco finding a letter from the last ever polar bear. He’s somehow ended up in Scotland. She’s going to save him. Join Pigfoot on a wild polar bear chase, through peat bogs and protests. They might just need your help.
Winner of the Sunday Times Playwriting Award, the Samuel French New Play Award, and the Camden People’s Theatre Award, 2019, not only does How To Save A Rock address climate change, it’s also entirely carbon-neutral, with lighting powered by a bicycle cycled live on stage and by solar-power. Their music, composed by Sarah Spencer, is also created live from found objects, and their production materials recycled and recyclable.
Performed by Will Stevens, Stephanie Ocampo, and Antonia Strafford-Taylor, one is left tot wonder if theatre can be sustainable AND entertaining. Pigfoot will prove exactly that, as How To Save A Rock comes to the VAULT Festival this February.
How To Save A Rock plays from 18th to 23rd February at The Pit, The Vaults, Leake Street, London, SE1 7NN. Tickets available here
