What is it to be wild?
Motionhouse presents Wild, its daring dance-circus production, exploring our relationship with the natural environment. Wild has been a major hit with audiences since its premiere in 2019, with its gravity-defying dance, acrobatics and circus.
In our modern lives, is the wild still shaping our behaviour?
Wild creates an urban forest in the every day of the city. Using the powerful physicality distinctive to Motionhouse, performers move through a forest of tall poles, which forms the striking set for Wild. From the top of the pole, life in the canopy looks down onto the forest floor – a dangerous world of unknown meetings.
Suitable for all ages.
WILD is commissioned by Gulbenkian & ART31 and Birmingham Hippodrome (as part of the Hippodrome Associate Artist programme). Supported by Without Walls with commissioning from Freedom Festival, Hat Fair, and Out There International Festival of Circus & Street Arts. With additional backing from the Garfield Weston Foundation, the Foyle Foundation, The 29th May 1961 Charitable Trust, The Saintbury Trust and The City of London Corporation.
