Scarabeus are creating Paradise Lost? an aerial theatre piece to be performed on the Archway Tower. In 1860 Victoria and Paradise Nurseries was located in Upper Holloway on the site of the Archway Tower. Here Benjamin Samuel Williams, a famous botanist and orchidologist, cultivated rare plants and published his populist orchid manuals. Drawing on this history and a contemporary life of a local florist, Paradise Lost? tells an intimate story of love, loss and hope against the epic backdrop of this local landmark.
Performance times: Friday 18th & Saturday 19th October 8pm-8.30pm. In addition to the aerial display, there will be a light show on the Archway Tower between 5 - 9pm on each of the performance days.
Location: Archway Tower, Junction Road, London N19 5SZ
Performances are free to watch from the pavement
