Jacksons Lane, London

Scarabeus Aerial Theatre

Our House is on Fire

A site-specific aerial circus production in Queens Wood, Highgate, one of the oldest forests in the UK, exploring climate change.

Jacksons Lane partnered with the acclaimed aerial circus company Scarabeus for Our House is on Fire, a site-specific new work set in the picturesque Queens Wood in Highgate, featuring an ensemble of local young aerialists.

The show arose out of the young people’s thoughts and feelings around our planet and the environment, and was a truly visual spectacle.
