What is it to be wild?

WILD, the daring new outdoor production from Motionhouse, explores our disconnect with the natural environment and how, in a world where many of us live in large urban areas, the wild environment is becoming increasingly alien to us.

WILD creates an urban forest in the everyday of the city. Using the powerful physicality distinctive to Motionhouse and combining dynamic choreography, acrobatic movement and hand-to-hand partnering, WILD is a juxtaposition of the complex relationships in the forest and the more atomised life of humans in the city.

A forest of tall poles enables performance on multiple levels. From the top of the pole, we explore life in the canopy, looking down onto the forest floor – a dangerous world of unknown meetings.

WILD premiered at Brighton Festival in May 2019 and continues to tour the UK over the summer. See below for our upcoming tour dates:
