Cate Blanchett and husband Andrew Upton flick a fake switch celebrating the Sydney Theatre Company’s rooftop solar panels on Friday (November 26) in Sydney, Australia.
The couple, who are the STC’s artistic directors, said powering the company’s building with the sun was about bringing it into the 21st century.
“If theatre doesn’t engage with the big issues that face human beings and society generally, then it very quickly becomes irrelevant,” Cate said at the ceremony.
The new rooftop solar power system will reportedly produce up to 70 percent of the company’s power supply, which is enough energy to power 46 average homes!
