Posted on behalf of Great Place Wentworth & Elsecar

WE Great Place in partnership with Wentworth Woodhouse will be presenting the first WE Wonder Noir Festival this November and will bring one of the best outdoor arts shows of the past few years, As the World Tipped, to Rotherham. These events will be building on the success of the Man Engine shows in 2018 and the summer WE Wonder Festival creating an unmissable spectacular. Street food/drink and outstanding performances will build up the atmosphere to the perfect autumn event.

An epic and stunningly realised portrait of the disaster we may all be facing .... [As The World Tipped] 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

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, humor and emotion. At the Copenhagen Climate Change conference, harassed staff fails 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 a drastic environmental catastrophe.

As The World Tipped is regarded as one of the finest large-scale outdoor shows to be produced by a UK company (Wired Aeriel Theatre).

These events are supported by Without Walls
