Wild Workshops encompass dance, physical theatre and voice as tools to explore and celebrate our vibrant, powerful, wild selves.

Wild Workshops are for women /those who identify as women and focus on female representation and physical empowerment, connecting with our inner ‘wild’.

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 (India).

KHAOS

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, Exeter City Council, Exeter Phoenix and Dance in Devon.
