As The World Tipped is coming to St Helens!

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

Combining dramatic film and visuals with breath-taking aerial performance, this ambitious and extraordinary piece of aerial theatre tells a powerful tale of an ecological crisis. 

Written and directed by Nigel Jamieson, one of the world's leading creators of outdoor spectacle having overseen the Sydney Olympics and Liverpool Capital of Culture, the 45-minute family-friendly show is part of St Helens Borough of Culture 2023 celebrations, and also aims to raise awareness of St Helens Borough Council's net zero by 2040 ambitions in recognition of the threat posed by rising temperatures across the world.

Commenting on bringing As The World Tipped to her hometown, our Artistic Director Wendy Hesketh-Ogilvie, who started her career in dance as a student at St Helens College, says:  

"Bringing 'As The World Tipped' to my hometown of St Helens fills me with joy: I can't wait to put on this amazing performance in a place that is so close to my heart. The show is a reminder of how art can bring our community together, spark conversations, and make a real impact. Let's tip the scales of imagination and creativity right here in our hometown, to address one of the most important issues of our time and change the world together."
