What is it to be WILD?


Tuesday 12 October 2021

1:30pm Schools, colleges and Universities

7:30pm Open to all

Walsall Arena and Arts Centre

We’re so excited to welcome back Motionhouse to Black Country Dance Hub with WILD, their daring dance-circus production which explores our disconnect with the natural environment.

In our modern lives, is the wild still shaping our behaviour? WILD creates an urban forest in the everyday of the city. Performers use powerful physicality and incredible feats to move through a forest of tall poles. From the top, life in the canopy looks down onto the forest floor – a dangerous world of unknown meetings.

In addition to joining us for the show at Walsall Arena and Arts Centre there’s a number of participatory extras allowing students to enjoy workshops, or even create a Curtain Raiser piece with the international touring company.

Participation Options

The Curtain Raiser | Thu 30 Sep, Thu 01 & Fri 08 Oct
