As The World Tipped
Location: Liverpool Anglican Cathedral
A real life disaster movie performed live in the night sky!
Liverpool’s own Wired Aerial Theatre brings you an ambitious and extraordinary performance which tells a powerful tale of ecological crisis. Combining dramatic film and visuals with breathtaking 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 battle with the effects of drastic environmental catastrophe.
As The World Tipped is written and directed by international director Nigel Jamieson, best known in Liverpool for creating the opening of Liverpool European Capital of Culture in 2008. It is commissioned by Liverpool City Council and Liverpool Primary Care Trust as part of the Decade of Health and Wellbeing. The performance highlights one of the key aims of the Decade as Liverpool strives to be a greener city, with a healthy environment and a lower carbon footprint.www.astheworldtipped.com
