Wildworks is the UK’s leading landscape theatre company.
From our base in Cornwall we make site-specific theatre with communities locally, nationally and internationally. We reach audiences and collaborators all over the globe. Everyone is invited.
Our work attracts people who do not go to the theatre. We’re to be found on beaches and woodlands, car parks, nightclubs and disused quarries, anywhere from derelict department stores to medinas, and from refugee camps to castles.
Collaboration and partnerships are central to our process. The lived experience of local people is at the heart of our work and without their participation, the work cannot happen. Our process starts with a conversation, often with marginalised communities, who help us shape the telling of everyday human stories in ways that are familiar and re-imagined.
We started in Cornwall, and that remains our emotional and physical home. We continue to build on Cornwall’s long history of working outdoors, and our practice is shaped by the defining features of Cornwall: a place in which artists naturally collaborate across artforms and with communities; a peninsula somewhere on the edge that looks outwards to the world, much like Portland.
For b-side 2023 – Uncommon Land
Wildworks are looking forward to returning to b-side with an uplifting creative celebration about Portland’s unique landscape. Through workshops and play they will discover those local stories that connect the community to this Uncommon Land. Prepare to have your senses tantalised, to connect with others around you, and to experience the landscape like never before.
