What is Re:Wild

Re:Wild is an exploration of the principles and techniques for creating theatre in found landscapes and communities. 

Wildworks’ areas of expertise include engaging a community in the research process, embedding non-professional creatives in project delivery, understanding the opportunities and challenges of making theatre-not-in-theatres, sound and music in the landscape, use of fire, falling light, distance and close-up, audience journey and both verbal and non-verbal storytelling. 

Over the course of our workshops, alongside Wildworks artists, discover how Wildworks approach projects, our processes and well-worn secrets. 

Through a mixture of conversation and practical activity you will gain: 

  • An understanding of Wildworks’ techniques 
  • Approaches to creating innovative and impactful scenography and design in found landscapes with a focus on Cornish landscapes and community 
  • Methods for constructing story for site specific theatre 
  • An understanding of how location influences the creative process 
  • Knowledge about how to make outdoor work that is resilient and can adapt to the elements and other practical constraints 
  • Practical experience of working as a team alongside Wildworks’ Artistic Director, Mydd Pharo, and Associate Artists 


Who is this for? 

  • We look for a range of artistic disciplines, professional and lived experience, and we particularly welcome applications from artists who have experienced barriers to the arts.
  • We ask participants to play, collaborate and embrace cross-disciplinary working; free from your usual day-to-day working practice.

Poem from Re:Wild residency participant Sarah Jane below:


Landed at Trelowarren with greetings of hugs.

A feeling of coming home.

A safe space to explore.

A wilderness to discover.

A quest to conquer.

Fizzy water swimming.

Humming and singing.

Strangers feeling like long lost friends.

Unlocking doors.

Unleashing wild dreams.

Creating mythical beings – Wildlings.

Terra Silvum – Earth Wood – Kraken of Oak

Mighty Beast – resting place for all.
