Wildworks

Wildworks is the UK’s leading landscape theatre company. From their base in Cornwall, they make site-specific theatre with communities locally, nationally and internationally. They reach audiences and collaborators all over the globe. Everyone is invited.

Wildworks are 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.

They started in Cornwall, and that remains their emotional and physical home. Many of their company members and associates live here and draw inspiration from Cornwall’s extraordinary natural and post-industrial landscape. Wildworks continue to build on Cornwall’s long history of working outdoors, turning a lack of infrastructure into a positive, by working in the landscape rather than traditional theatre venues.

Collaboration and partnerships are central to their process. The lived experience of local people is at the heart of their work and without their participation, the work cannot happen. Their process starts with a conversation, often with marginalised communities, who help them to shape the telling of everyday human stories in ways that are familiar and re-imagined.

Their work is predominantly site-specific live performance with elements of exhibition, audio/visual, digital media and film. Wildworks tell universal stories in ways that are highly visual, making use of diverse media. Their productions resonate and are enjoyed by people across all ages and cultural backgrounds. An important part of their purpose is to support the next generation of landscape theatre makers and artists.
