The Carbon Story site is all about the great carbon cycle. It also explains how mankind’s use of fossil fuels is affecting climate change – the greenhouse gas effect! With that knowledge we have the power to change what’s happening to Earth’s climate.

All life on Earth is carbon based. Whether you’re a tree, a lion, a shark or a human. We’re all carbon!

The Challenge
On this site you will find all that you need to put on a fantastic performance of the carbon story. The site will be highly interactive so we hope you’re going to suggest lots of good ideas, for example what you want competitions on. For starters, we will run a competition for the best:

  • script (the one we’re providing on this site is only for guidance, it’s open to your interpretation)
  • song & dance routine
  • costumes
  • director

We’re putting some ideas for songs up on this site that may inspire you and you may want to post your own to share. Here’s a picture from the massively successful The Rocky Horror Picture Show stage performance of the Time Warp

Time warp song & dance routine

‘It’s just a jump to the left, and then a step to the right. Put your hands on your hips; and bend your knees in tight. ….. Let’s do THE TIME WARP again!’

The following Action for Children UK video will give you some ideas for a dance to do in the show

Time Warp lyrics
(Riff Raff) It’s astounding
Time is fleeting
Madness takes it’s toll…

(Magenta) Ahh…

(Riff Raff) But listen closely…

(Magenta) Not for very much longer…

(Riff Raff) I’ve got to keep control.
I remember doing the Time Warp.
Drinking those moments when
The blackness would hit me.

(Riff Raff & Magenta) And the void would be calling.

(Guests) Let’s do the Time Warp again.
Let’s do the Time Warp again.

(Narrator) It’s just a jump to the left.

(Guests) And then a step to the right.

(Narrator) With your hand on your hips.

(Guests) You bring your knees in tight.
But it’s the pelvic thrust.
They really drive you insane.
Let’s do the Time Warp again.
Let’s do the Time Warp again.

(Magenta) It’s so dreamy
Oh, fantasy free me
So you can’t see me
No not at all.

In another dimension
With voyeuristic intention.
Well secluded I see all…

(Riff Raff) With a bit of a mind flip…

(Magenta) You’re into a time slip…

(Riff Raff) And nothing can ever be the same.

(Magenta) You’re spaced out on sensation.

(Riff Raff) Like you’re under sedation.

(Guests) Let’s do the Time Warp again.
Let’s do the Time Warp again.

(Columbia) Well, I was walking down the street
Just having a think
When a snake of a guy
Gave me an evil wink.
Well it shook me up
It took me by surprise
He had a pick-up truck
And the devil’s eyes
He stared at me
And I felt a change
Time meant nothing
Never would again.

(Guests) Let’s do the Time Warp again.
Let’s do the Time Warp again.

(Narrator) It’s just a jump to the left.

(Guests) And then a step to the right.

(Narrator) With your hands on your hips.

(Guests) You bring you knees in tight.
But it’s the pelvic thrust…
That really drives you insane
Let’s do the Time Warp again.
Let’s do the Time Warp again.
Let’s do the Time Warp again

(Columbia) Ah! Oh! Oh! Yeoooww…
Ahhhh.

(Guests) Let’s do the Time Warp again.
Let’s do the Time Warp again.

(Narrator) It’s just a jump to the left.

(Guests) And then a step to the right.

(Narrator) With your hands on your hips.

(Guests) You bring your knees in tight.
But it’s the pelvic thrust
They really drive you insane.
Let’s do the Time Warp again.
Let’s do the Time Warp again.

There’s a fixed amount of carbon in the biosphere, that’s the air around our planet Earth that we breathe. This fixed amount of carbon just keeps being used by different living beings – and Industry!

All living matter on Earth is carbon based, that includes vegetation like trees and grass, animals like humans, and fish like sharks! Really everything that is alive and breathes,everything that isn’t a rock or metal. This story explains the amazing carbon cycle and how carbon is never ending, it never goes away it just keeps on turning up in different life forms.

We held a workshop for The Great Carbon Show at the Arcola Green Sunday event at the beautiful Eastern Curve Garden in Hackney. All ages took part and this is the final performance!
