Wired Aerial Theatre

Wired Aerial Theatre - by Tracey Tutt - Low Res

This ambitious and extraordinary piece of aerial theatre tells a powerful tale of ecological crisis. Combining dramatic video 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 features the breathtaking performers of pioneering company Wired Aerial Theatre.

“An epic and stunningly realised portrait of the disaster we may all be facing …. This outdoor show is a lot more than mere spectacle. It does that rare thing – it makes you gulp with astonishment, but also think.” Mark Shenton, The Stage
