A protest. A theatre show. An energy-generating dance party.

HOT IN HERE celebrates action taking place around the world for climate justice.

Developed from conversations with climate activists across the globe, HOT IN HERE uses dance, real-life stories, and music to share the action taking place internationally against climate injustice, and the UK’s place within it.

The show is powered by the first energy-harvesting dancefloor in live theatre. Like the collective action needed to tackle the climate emergency, the dancefloor converts the collective energy of the performers’ bodies into electricity. Come join the movement. Everyone’s invited.

Made in collaboration with young people taking action at the frontlines of the climate crisis, predominantly in the Global South and nearest the Equator.

Made by Pigfoot, a multi award-winning theatre company telling stories about the climate crisis, with the least carbon impact possible.

Co-produced by Pigfoot and Gate Theatre, commissioned and supported by Camden People’s Theatre.

Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

With support from English Touring Theatre (ETT), ‘I’ve Got An Idea’ Fund, ARC Stockton, The Lipman-Miliband Trust and The Golsoncott Foundation.

Post show conversation

Following the performance of HOT IN HERE, Pigfoot and Kieran Barker will hold a post show conversation, exploring climate impacts within Stockton and Tees Valley and sharing opportunities to take action locally. Join us for an informal discussion to share resources, inspiration and to get planning what’s next…!

    There is 30cm (112/3“) of legroom in front of each seat, with additional legroom in rows D and L, and in Box 1 and Box 2.

    T-Coil Loop System

    Unfortunately, due to illness, this show will no longer be BSL interpreted. We tried to find a replacement for our regular interpreter, but this was sadly not possible at short notice as it would not have allowed a replacement interpreter sufficient time with the script. We are very sorry for any disappointment this may cause, but we look forward to being able to welcome you to other BSL interpreted performances in the future.

    The Theatre has a t-coil loop system covering rows A-K. The best positions are seats 1-4 and 13-16 on each row, with the weakest signal in the centre of the row. To use the loop system you will need turn your hearing aid to the T- position.
