What is it to be wild?
WILD, the daring new dance-circus production from Motionhouse, explores our disconnect with the natural environment. In our increasingly urban lives, is the wild still shaping our behaviour?
Performers use powerful physicality and daring feats to move through an intriguing forest of tall poles. From the top of the pole, life in the canopy looks down onto the forest floor - a dangerous world of unknown meetings.
Where do we belong? Do we choose to survive as a lone wolf or engage with the pack and the tribe?
