The idea for the recycled pallet theatre sprung from the minds of the Red Room’s artistic director, Topher Campbell, and its producer, Bryan Savery two years ago. Martin Kaltwasser and his wife, Folke Köbberling were brought on to design and construct the theatre, which followed a loosely-definied plan was largely constructed on-the-fly according to whatever materials were available. Volunteer architects, builders and other members of the nearby community have put in over 4,200 hours of work since they started construction nine weeks ago. Although we’ve seen plans for shipping pallet theaters before, the Jellyfish Theatre is the first to be built.

    As a theatre person, what I most love about this is the total integration of the building with the plays. This could be the seed of a whole new idea of what \”eco-theater\” needs to be, a totally integrated \”eco-drama production process.\”

    I also love that the theatre building looks more like back stage than stage. Fantastic. Inspiring.
