About us

Red Earth create site-specific work in, and in response to the landscape: installations, performances and participatory events exploring our natural and cultural heritage, transforming our understanding of the places where we live

Led by artists and co-directors Caitlin Easterby and Simon Pascoe Red Earth have produced work in Europe, Java, Japan and Mongolia. Projects have explored the effects of climate change and our complex relationship with geological, archaeological, ecological and cultural landscapes.

Red Earth events amplify and resonate with the natural landscape, immersing the audience in its hidden terrain, engaging the public in the creative process.

We work collaboratively with artists and specialists in the fields of geology, ecology, history and archaeology, disciplines which ultimately help us understand how, why and who we are now.

Our work looks to the wider world for inspiration while focusing on local detail.

Performances are often inter-cultural exchanges, while our temporary sculpture installations are sensitive to site and built on location from locally sourced materials; a combination which results in atmospheric and immersive experiences challenging our expectations of the landscape.
