WildWorks, the country’s leading landscape theatre company, returned to The Lost Gardens of Heligan with their second site-specific work for 14-18 NOW. While 100: The Day Our World Changed (2014) focused on a generation walking into battle in 1914, this companion piece looked at the devastating aftermath of conflict, telling the homecoming stories of those who fight and live through war.

100: UnEarth took its inspiration from the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, a love story with a deeply moving ending. It explored grief and tragedy – but by considering how we learn to leave behind the past when our world changes beyond recognition, it also had hope at its heart.

Conceived and created by Bill Mitchell, WildWorks’ founder and artistic director, before his untimely death in 2017, 100: UnEarth featured artists, performers, musicians, veterans and members of the local community among a cast of hundreds in a unique spectacle, rooted in the Cornish landscape where it was both set and performed.

Co-commissioned by 14-18 NOW and The Lost Gardens of Heligan
