Following on from October's announcement launching award-winning Arcola Theatre's all-weather outside performance space, the venue is taking another practical step in the challenge of performing in a time of COVID.

Together with Imperial College London's consultancy, Imperial Consultants, Arcola will be looking at how the air quality in a theatre impacts the transmission of viruses, and how increased airflow can mitigate the spread for the benefit for users of the venue, and for the wider industry.
