Heating, cooling and ventilating are three systems that form the bulk of energy used within a theatre. As our building was refurbished and reopened in 2006, the Young Vic actually has very good environmental performance.
For After Miss Julie (the first in our series of Classics for a New Climate), we are reducing consumption by using natural ventilation and by tailoring the air supply to After Miss Julie‘s seating layout. This explains why the temperature will vary slightly and why we’ve asked audience members to wear layers. This has helped After Miss Julie achieve it’s target of reducing energy consumption (compared to a normal production in The Maria) by at least 60%!
