We’re absolutely thrilled to announce our full programme of events for Inside Out Dorset 2018.

The opening weekend takes place on Poole Quay, with …sodade… by Cirque Rouages, combining breathtaking circus with magical storytelling, in a world-class sunset spectacular. During the day, enjoy life-size interactive video games in Matthew Harrison’s Actual Reality Arcade or take to the stage and give busking a go with the Rock The Boat Street Guitars, nestled inside quaint old sailing boats.

In the Shelley Park area of Boscombe, surprises await around every corner in Coastal Encounters, a series of performances and installations to entertain and inspire, including three UK premiers.

Furious Folly is presented in Weymouth in collaboration with 14 – 18 NOW. Step onto the battlefield on no-mans-land, as the audience is divided into two opposing sides and immersed within an open-air collage of sound, light, pyrotechnics and performance. Furious Folly challenges the inhumanity and senselessness of conflicts past and present.

And across the week at Maiden Castle in Dorchester, experience the unique Wayfaring from artists And Now: Using local and found materials the artists will craft an installation that audiences can move through, investigate and contribute to. And on the final evening fire, music and performance will transform the installation in a rousing celebration.
