A bit of background to Arbonauts:
We have a passionate environmentally orientated ethos. We are an emergent company, and have recently achieved support from IdeasTap GREENFUND for this project. We have negotiated with Southwark council for the past 5 months to use the trees and chapel of Nunhead Cemetery for our forthcoming performance BIPED’S MONITOR. Arbonauts have pioneered this licensed use of the cemetery, having done so we hope to enable and encourage more cultural events of this nature in other urban green spaces. We are delighted to have NOOSPHERE Pods in our production, flat pack tree dwellings. We are encouraging audience members to travel by bicycle to and from the location.
