WildWorks return to Heligan with a story that explores love, loss and hope
War. Love. Loss. Hope.
"A very powerful piece of theatre, epic in scale, cleverly woven together stories, a feast for the eyes and ears, very moving with comedy too."
Follow WildWorks into the Underworld, woven through The Lost Gardens of Heligan and the unfolding of a show with a love story at its heart; an exploration of grief and tragedy with a deeply moving ending.
The companion piece to 100: The Day Our World Changed looks at the aftermath of conflict, telling the homecoming stories of those who fight and live through war. Through 100:UnEarth, WildWorks retell the Greek Myth of Orpheus and Eurydice.
"Last night, some magic in the mist. 100: UnEarth a beautiful immersive experience, A love story inspired by Orpheus and Eurydice. See this if you can." Dawn French on Twitter
