The Ross Ice Shelf: Husband and wife scientific team hunker down inside a tiny, tightly packed survival capsule, wintering over in the vast frozen Antarctic, accompanied by only web-cam, sporadic radio contact, the amazing Aurora Australis, and a colony of male penguins.

Returning to Wellington after an acclaimed national tour, HEAT is a world first. Unlike other conventional theatre shows HEAT powers completely off-grid by sustainable means. This unique Spacewise energy installation is on site at the theatre!
