WeConsumeEnergyInTheCity - Challenging our current energy habits

Documentary theater video screening and discussion

23June2018 24June2018 11:00


Is the way we currently consume energy in the city sustainable? The documentary video screened during this event challenges this.

CODALoop Amsterdam in collaboration with a group of students from the UvA Master’s program Theater Studies have created a documentary theater video to challenge the way we currently consume energy in our city. By employing the theatrical technique known as verbatim theater, the video collects the testimonies of diverse groups of Amsterdammers and their energy consumption habits. By using the exact words of the people interviewed, this visual document creates an experimental narrative that captures, as a snapshot, how energy is consumed in Amsterdam in 2018. Join one of the video screenings and the discussion afterwards with the actors and the researchers behind this project. 


CODALoop researchers:

  • Beatriz Pineda Revilla, MSc
  • Prof. Luca Bertolini
  • Prof. Karin Pfeffer
  • Federico Savini, PhD
