Arcola Theatre Production Companys

Arcola Theatre is set in a converted factory in Dalston, East London. Founded in September 2000 Arcola has gained international reputation not only as a powerhouse of new writing and ground breaking productions but also for it's expansive community projects and innovative management models.

In keeping with the pioneering ethos of Arcola in 2007 we launched Arcola Energy, led by our Executive Director Dr Ben Todd a leading expert in sustainability and fuel cell technology. Through Arcola Energy we aim to make Arcola the world’s first carbon neutral theatre by installing biomass heating, solar panels, fuel cells and state of the art energy saving technologies throughout the building.

We will also create the first centre for new energy technology in the arts. It will be a knowledge incubator with dedicated work space where engineers can develop initiatives to tackle climate change. Arcola Energy will be a hub for new thinking and cross-fertilisation between art and science, bringing together artistic, entrepreneurial and technological creativity.
