2011 - Present
As the World Tipped, written and directed by Nigel Jamieson.
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 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.
“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
