Trans-Plantable Living Room

Trans-Plantable Living Room is a unique and exciting creative collaboration between an international team of performance makers, a network of farmers, gardeners and permaculture designers and oral history archivists, working together to create local gardening-based performances in September at World Stage Design in Cardiff, and Central School of Speech & Drama in London.

Trans-Plantable Living Room aimed to create a positive environmental and community impact through the following:
Growing: community gardens grew edible plants, fostering food growing skills and opportunities.
Devising: community story-telling workshops and oral history interviews, collecting people’s stories.
The Living Stage: portable beds and walls made of recycled packaging filled with the edible plants.
Performance: activated the edible, living stage through performance inspired by stories from the community.
