The UK’s leading outdoor landscape theatre company return to Cornwall in Summer 2018 with a new production called 100: UnEarth co-commissioned by 14-18 NOW, the UK’s arts programme for the First World War centenary and The Lost Gardens of Heligan.
War. Love. Loss. Hope.
War is over. It has changed the lives of everyone it has touched. The men are coming home but death is never far away.
In 2014 WildWorks created a one day, outdoor landscape theatre event at The Lost Gardens of Heligan . 100: The Day Our World Changed focused on an unknowing generation walking into battle in 1914.
100: UnEarth looks at the devastating aftermath of conflict, telling the homecoming stories of those who fight and live through war. Taking inspiration from the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, 100: UnEarth has a love story at its heart, and explores grief and tragedy with a deeply moving ending.
The production will feature artists, performers, musicians, veterans and members of the local community among a cast of hundreds.
We are interested in talking to anyone who has experience of conflict either directly or in their extended family and, as always, are inviting people of all backgrounds and experience to get involved. Drop us a line at [email protected]
Tickets for this outdoor performance will be on sale in Spring.
