Following their performance of BLOCK at last year’s Freedom Festival, WILD is the daring new dance-circus production from Motionhouse.

Exploring our disconnect with the natural environment in our increasingly urban lives, is the wild still shaping our behaviour?

Watch as performers use powerful physicality and daring feats to move through an intriguing forest. From the top of the forest, those in the canopy look down onto those below - a dangerous world of unknown meetings.

Where do we belong? Do we choose to survive as a lone wolf or engage with the pack?

What is it to be wild?

WILD is commissioned by Gulbenkian and 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 and  the City of London Corporation.
