WILD WORKSHOPS FOR WOMEN
Re-wilding through movement – it’s time to breathe.
Come and get in touch with your unique self, while connecting with other women in a supportive space for creative discovery. Celebrating our strength and resilience, we will explore ways of moving and being in the world.
It’s a chance to let go of everyday roles and expectations, with time for your self to connect with your inner ‘wild’. The workshops will draw on the world of dance and theatre – no experience required!
Workshops are designed for those who identify as women, and open to anyone aged 18 to 118!
Wild Workshops have previously been delivered for Women of the World Festival (WOW), Mothers Who Make (MWM), Devon Refugee Society, FUSE Diverse Dance (UK) and Shoonya Centre for Movement Arts (India).
Workshops are delivered by Chhaya's Artistic Director, Kay Crook, Chhaya's Physical Theatre Director Becca Savory-Fuller and Chhaya's Dramaturg, Aileen Gonsalves.
Workshops are offered as a six week series at each host venue and delivered by one of our facilitators. One-off Wild Workshops for community centres, domestic abuse charities and female refugee groups are co-delivered by two of our facilitators.
Duration: 60 - 180 minutes (depending on group/request)

WW ARE PARTNERED WITH KHAOS
Wild Workshops accompany Chhaya's dance theatre production, KHAOS.
KHAOS celebrates what it is to be woman, drawing on ancient stories and oppressive archetypes to bring audiences of all ages a highly energetic, stirring and visceral dance performance that rejects order in favour of complexity and chaos. Live musicians join six contemporary dance artists to revel in the joy, tenderness and the power of wild women.
Expect evocative choreography that seems to compel audiences to dance in the aisles and out into the streets.
Dedicated to women who have fought for their rights throughout history and continue to do so today.
Wild Workshops are supported by Arts Council England, Pavilion Dance South West, Exeter City Council, Exeter Phoenix and Dance in Devon.
