The Danger Tree

2nd - 31st August


The Danger Tree at Titanic Belfast

We are delighted to be hosting The Danger Tree, a ground-breaking visual arts exhibition marking 100 years since the end of WWI, in The Andrews Gallery at Titanic Belfast this August!
 
The free exhibition commemorating World War I is comprised of a collection of original paintings and limited edition prints which use augmented reality (AR) software to bring each piece alive through poetry, animation and music.
 
Visitors will be invited to watch as the paintings are transformed into an immersive 3D experience, using hand-held devices and earphones, with each telling the compelling story of a different soldier who fought and fell in the Great War from 1914 to 1918.
 
Created by award-winning artists Scarlett Raven and Marc Marot, this is the first time The Danger Tree has come to Ireland, following critically-acclaimed showcases in London, Manchester and Liverpool.
 
It has been brought to life by award-winning film set designer Kave Quinn and will provide visitors with a unique experience designed to engage and enthral.
 
 
The poetry of legendary war poets including Wilfred Owen, Siegfried Sassoon and Rupert Brooke is narrated by award-winning actors including Sean Bean, Christopher Eccleston and Stephen Graham, who provide moving readings to complement the work.
 
While a bespoke music score for each piece has been composed by Reservoir Dogs film composer Marc Canham to bring the exhibition to life.

Admission: Free
Dates: Thursday 2nd August – Friday 31st August

Opening Hours: 9am - 8pm (last admission 7pm)
