We’re were really happy to have helped to Make Hackney Sparkle for Christmas. Our Cycle Cinema was  one event featured in Destination Hackney‘s Make Hackney Sparkle.

Just returned from Berlin having been to the premier of Atmen (or ‘Lungs’ in english) at the Schaubühne International. Directed by Katie Mitchell, ‘the play is about population growth and climate change and the way these two factors make it very tricky when you’re young and thinking about having a baby and you care about the world’.

Electric Pedals built all of the kit used to provide ALL the power for the play. The two main performers physically produce the energy used to light them during the show. Other performers produce the all energy for the the sound equipment, video projection (which displays an increasing population counter), the house lights and other ambient lighting.
