Duration: 40 mins
Type: Circus, Dance
Sorry – this event has already happened!
A tangle of tall poles creates an urban jungle in this daring new dance-circus production from Motionhouse. Using powerful physicality, dynamic choreography and acrobatic movement, WILD explores the human disconnect with the natural environment and how, in a world that is becoming increasingly urbanised, the wild is gradually become more and more distant.
WILD will be performed as part of Greenwich Fair, GDIF’s two-day “festival within a festival” from 21-23 June, bringing together UK and international street arts companies to Greenwich Town Centre in a fun-filled, family-friendly extravaganza.
There is step-free access to the performance location in Cutty Sark Gardens. The most direct route is from the north side of Cutty Sark Gardens, near the Foot Tunnel. Or else you can access the performance level at the entrance to Cutty Sark Gardens from Greenwich Church Street (near M&S and the Gipsy Moth Pub).
This area will be marked with a flag or sign and will have limited seating – please ask a GDIF Volunteer if you’re not sure where to go.

Motionhouse creates and tours a wide range of inspiring and powerful dance-circus productions to theatres and festivals in the UK and across the globe.

These short, sharp injections of dance and circus are designed to be performed up-close, attracting and engaging large crowds, and inspiring audiences who are not necessarily familiar with dance.
