As The World Tipped

On 30th and 31st July an ambitious and extraordinary performance about Climate Change, is coming to Liverpool.

Combining dramatic film and visuals with breathtaking aerial performance from Liverpool’s own Wired Aerial Theatre, ‘As The World Tipped’ confronts one of the most pressing issues for people and the planet with spectacle, humour and emotion. 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 environmental catastrophe.

Commissioned by Liverpool City Council and Liverpool Primary Care Trust as part of the Decade of Health and Wellbeing ‘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.

The free show takes place at Liverpool Anglican Cathedral on Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st July. The Cathedral will be open to explore all day with activity from 7pm leading up to the main performance at 10pm. This event will form part of discussions around Liverpool’s low carbon aspirations in which the group hopes to work together for a Liverpool which is more Equal, Well and Green in 2020.
