Synopsis
 
Red Earth are building a series of temporary greenwood towers on the hills of Northala Fields, brought to life in an atmospheric event marking the arrival of the Paralympic Flame in Ealing.

Although recently constructed from the debris of the old Wembley stadium, Northala Fields evokes a landscape of prehistoric earthworks. NORTHALA responds to this connection between contemporary and ancient, bridging the passage of time between prehistory and the industrial present.

For the performance on 24 August 2012, the hills of Northala Fields are transformed by sound and fire into a ritual landscape, marking the journey of the Paralympic Flame upwards towards the heavens. NORTHALA evokes the past and celebrates the future, as Northala Fields becomes, briefly, the centre of the world.
