Community

The Arcadia experience is built on an ethos of positive change.

Read more…Read less…

Our installations are built from repurposed military hardware, exploring the relationship between technology and human intent. The Metamorphosis show is anchored in themes of transformation and the development of the world’s first recycled biofuel pyrotechnic system helps showcase what can be done with the world’s waste.

Drawing on the primal human instincts that unite us, such as music dance and gathering around fire, Arcadia use cutting edge technology and unconventional approaches to the arts to create a universal experience that resonates across cultures.

As Arcadia has grown, the decisions taken around each opportunity and challenge we've faced has been guided by that ethos of positive change.

We hope that by through what we do, people will be inspired to come together, challenge convention, launch their own projects and have as much fun as humanly possible while minimising any negative impact on the world around us.

It blew my mind and made me feel like a child again, rare to find that awe in adult life!

An awesome piece of theatre on an impressive scale. I was truly impressed with how the story evolved and was told and wasn't just using tech for effect.

Words can't really describe it.
