Abstract

In the 12 years I have spent exploring sustainability in the performing arts, nothing has inspired me more than the concept of regenerative development and the creative projects that speak to this movement. Regenerative development is a place-based and community-orientated approach to sustainability that emphasises socio-ecological potential (du Plessis 2012). The term ‘regenerative’ focuses on ‘enhancing life in all its manifestations – humans, other species, ecological systems – through an enduring responsibility of stewardship’ (Cole 2012, 1). This holistic approach reconsiders limited notions of sustainability from one of moderation and restraint, to one of possibility and abundance, where local contexts, communities and place-specific aspirations take centre stage.
