Following on from the huge success of BLOCK at River Festival 2019, Motionhouse present their daring new outdoor production WILD for LEAP Festival.
The performance explores our disconnect with the natural environment and asks if, in our increasingly urban lives, the wild is still shaping our behaviour? Where do we belong? Do we choose to survive as a lone wolf or engage with the pack and the tribe?
Integrating dynamic choreography, acrobatic movement and hand-to-hand partnering, WILD will be staged atop an urban forest of industrial scaffolding inside the Baltic’s new Hinterlands space, in a breathtaking show for audiences of all ages.
Motionhouse are a global touring production company, known for their stunning dance-circus and large-scale performances. The company’s Artistic Director Kevin Finnan was Choreographer and Movement Director of the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Paralympic Games.
