Wildworks Stray from the path
Wildworks is a theatre company that seeks a different route and invites participants and audiences on physical and emotional journeys that celebrate the epic in the everyday.
Everyone is invited
Large scale spectacular performances or small intimate artworks that grow out of their locations; quarries, cliffs, harbours, derelict industrial sites, castles, empty department stores… all over the world, from Palestine to Port Talbot. And they work with the people who belong to these places to make the shows who help by telling their stories and memories, and by donating their skills and passions. Narrative is at the centre of the work. Bringing the seeds of a story to a site and weaving in the strands that tie people and place together.
Never happier than when they’re making work in Cornwall, Wildworks are busy creating a brand-new show for summer 2022 in St Austell.
I am Kevin
‘My mother stands at the water’s edge.
At the water’s edge stands a tree.
At the water’s edge, on the very edge,
at the water’s edge… is me.’
A prophecy predicts that a child born of darkness will have the power to end everything. ‘I am Kevin’ is the quest of one boy to find the light.
This summer… Wildworks invites you to let your imagination run wild on a journey of impossibility. Take a deep dive into the darkest depths of your consciousness and rewrite the stories that try to define us.
A contemporary myth that teeters on the edge of what is real and what is not.
A provocation to rediscover the power and possibility that lies beneath the surface of us all.
A bedtime story to set the world on fire.
‘If thoughts create things….
then surely you can imagine anything into existence.
You can dream anything into reality’
