A spectacular large-scale aerial theatre production which confronts climate change will take centre-stage here at Wentworth Woodhouse this weekend, 9th and 10th November.
As The World Tipped will tell the story of a climate crisis through dramatic film, visuals and aerial performance, which will see performers suspended on a tilting stage 18 metres off the ground.
The performance by UK-based Wired Aerial Theatre is set at the Secretariat of the Copenhagen Climate Change Conference, where staff fail to notice as the world around them slides towards disaster.
The event is part of a wider celebration, titled WE Wonder Noir ,brought to you Rotherham by WE Great Place – a partnership between Wentworth Woodhouse Preservation Trust, Rotherham Council and Barnsley Council, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and Arts Council England.
Tickets are available via Eventbrite and cost £12.50 for adults and £5 for children. Children aged 3 and under go free. Family tickets cost £30 (2 adults and up to 3 children aged 4-16).
Those attending can look forward to street food and variety acts from 6pm before the main aerial show at 8pm.
