The Drum


Three men, one balloon, and a legendary attempt to reach the North Pole…

In 1897 three Swedish adventurers headed for the North Pole in a hydrogen filled balloon. Their aim was to explore new lands, to map the undiscovered Arctic and to plant the flag of Sweden at the pole. At 2.30pm on the 11th July they cut the anchor lines and floated up into the cold arctic air. They were never seen alive again…

Using an international cast, storytelling, physical theatre and live music, award winning New International Encounter (NIE) invite you to join them for an exhilarating journey into one of the world’s last great wilderness areas. A journey full of hope and derring-do, of frostbite and patriotic songs. A dream and a nightmare of the great white north.

Established in 2001, NIE have created 17 original productions and toured to 29 different countries, spanning 3 continents.
