As The World Tipped
A Wired Aerial Theatre Production
Written and Directed by Nigel Jamieson.
Produced by XTRAX
Saturday 21 September, 7.30pm
Stade Open Space, Hastings Old Town
This exciting and extraordinary piece of aerial theatre tells a powerful tale of ecological crisis. Combining dramatic film and visuals with breath-taking aerial performance, As The World Tipped confronts one of the most pressing issues for the planet with spectacle, humour and emotion. At the Secretariat of the Copenhagen Climate Change conference, harassed staff fail to notice as the world around them, literally and metaphorically, slides toward disaster. Suspended above the audience in the night sky, the performers struggle to control their increasingly precarious world as they do battle with the effects of drastic environmental catastrophe.
Written and directed by Nigel Jamieson one of the world’s leading creators of outdoor spectacle (Sydney Olympics, Liverpool Capital of Culture), As The World Tipped has been created with the pioneering team from Wired Aerial Theatre. Co-Produced by Without Walls, A Tipping Point/Without Walls Co-Commission, Commissioned by Brighton Dome & Festival, Norwich & Norfolk Festival, Made in Liverpool supported by Liverpool City Council, Co-Commissioned by Greenwich + Docklands International Festival, Mintfest, Stockton International Riverside Festival and XTRAX
