What it’s all about

Since the dawn of time, people have gathered around fire to celebrate the human spirit.

Arcadia’s 360 degree world is the modern remix of that timeless concept, bringing thousands together from all walks of life.

Inspired by conscious approaches to materials and energy, Arcadia built the iconic 50 tonne Spider from recycled military hardware. By transforming the machinery of destruction into unifying arenas, every element is infused with positive change – the idea at the heart of the Metamorphosis show.

Working with communities from around the world, Arcadia have launched a series of projects, ranging from the development of the world’s first recycled biofuel pyrotechnic system to collaborations with an Aboriginal nation.

Arcadia's global travels cemented the idea that we truly are all one. Whether at Burning Man in the Nevada desert or a futuristic cityscape in Asia those shared experiences are universal.

We are together on this life giving sphere, hurtling through the void, and as we face the challenges ahead – finding ways to act resourcefully and coming together in unity and celebration have never seemed more important.
