An unmissable night-time performance in collaboration with 14 – 18 NOW


As night falls in no-mans-land a battlefront is drawn between the two lines. Disorientated, you suddenly find yourself immersed within an open-air collage of sound, light, pyrotechnics and performance. Railing against the futility of the Great War and the madness of the battlefield, Furious Folly challenges the inhumanity and senselessness of conflicts past and present.

Please note: The location of this performance has been confirmed.

The audience is invited to gather from 7pm at Mouth Pleasant Park + Ride, Weymouth (DT3 5BJ) for a prompt 7.30pm start to the performance when they will be guided into to the performance arena.

Mark Anderson

Mark Anderson uses light, sound, electronics, kinetics, fire and pyrotechnics to make compelling site specific temporary installations and performances, often spectacular, at other times subtle and intimate, and, on occasion, all these things at the same time.
