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. After much success, it came back at Wentworth Woodhouse in November 2019, and is on it's way to Adelaide in Australia in March 2020, at the beautiful WOMADelaide Festival in Botanic Park

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, 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.

Written and directed by Nigel Jamieson, one of the world’s leading creators of outdoor spectacle (Sydney Olympics, Liverpool Capital of Culture). The show has played over 50 times; to audiences across the UK and festivals in France, Germany, Australia, Chile, South Korea, Italy and more. Last year, As The World Tipped featured at Sziget one of Europe's biggest music, culture and arts festivals.
