The seven-metre scale model of Earth will be on view on 17 and 18 September at Moors Valley Country Park and Forest and offers an out-of-this-world opportunity to view our planet as an astronaut would see it from space, prompting thoughts about humanity’s effect on the planet.
Next weekend, 24 to 26 September, Gaia moves to the ancient landscape of the Marshwood Vale, within the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, at Park Copse on the Symondsbury Estate, near Bridport.
At both sites it is accompanied by an artwork trail of site-specific events and performances responding to the climate emergency and our use of the land, including Two and a Half, a new outdoors dance theatre work from West Dorset-based Fingerprint Dance using music composed by Andrew Dickson who lives in Bridport and is best known for his work with film maker Mike Leigh. The piece is inspired by the 2.5-degree rise in Arctic sea temperatures due to climate change.
Inside Out Dorset also includes a full programme of outdoor circus events on Friday and Saturday 17, 18 September in Poole’s Lower High Street and Quay and The Quomps in Christchurch before the stunning finale in Weymouth on Friday 24 and Saturday 25 September when the giant puppets of Dundu feature in a procession through the town lead by the relentless drummers of Worldbeaters playing a soundtrack inspired by world rhythms.
