From our base in Cornwall Wildworks makes theatrical, site-specific experiences and artworks all over the globe. From beaches, clifftops and woodlands to car parks and disused quarries. From derelict department stores to medinas, from refugee camps to castles. We invite the people who inhabit those spaces to join us on physical and emotional journeys telling everyday human stories through sites that are both familiar and re-imagined; where horizons are widened, boundaries are hurdled, conversations are started, people are celebrated, and memories are made.
"Wildworks proves you can be experimental and yet humane and shows that theatre which sails out of buildings and away from texts does not always abandon stories"
"Fact and fiction, myth and memory, rumour and reality, even the living and the dead stalk side by side. I'm prepared to bet that over the last three days, Port Talbot was one of the happiest places on Earth"
Wildworks makes landscape theatre - large scale spectacular performances and artworks that grow out of their locations; quarries, cliffs, harbours, derelict industrial sites, castles, empty department stores... And we work with the people who belong to these places to make the shows. They help us by telling us their stories and memories, and by donating their skills and passions. Narrative is at the centre of our work. We bring the seeds of a story to a site and weave in the strands that tie people and place together.
