Outdoor Arts Lighthouse Ampitheatre


Originally cmmissioned by Activate in 2016 for the Inside Out Dorset festival, Cloudscapes was created by Lorna Rees of Gobbledegook Theatre a duologue for performer and clouds. Audiences lie on beanbags and contemplate the ever-changing parade of clouds above them while listening on headphones as Lorna tells a story laced with clouds that’s based on a personal journey of a lifetime she took with her father.

“If people drift off and fall asleep I take it as the most enormous compliment,” says the Christchurch-based artist.

An uplifting, reflective experience, afterwards audiences visit the Cloud Box, a converted horsebox where Lorna displays artworks and ephemera that relate not only to clouds, but also to her family story.

“I find Cloudscapes incredibly emotional,” she adds. “I have cried every time I’ve performed it. At the end people come and hug me and talk to me about it, it’s very moving.”

Cloudscapes is a free event and will run from 11am to 3.15pm to allow visitors to book a ticket and experince the day..
