MY BODY IS AN ETCHING - DUNEDIN
Wild Thing is a wry look at the call of the wild and the need for creature comforts.
Wild Thing explores the yearning to be intimately connected to nature, and to express the essentially wild aspects of human nature. It’s also about security. The piece is framed by two poems: “Wild Geese” by Mary Oliver and “Wilderness” by Carl Sandberg, which urge us to relish our animal natures and to celebrate our place in the family of things. These poems present a wild world of extremes: awe inspiring yet visceral, harsh yet exciting; a world that calls to us and our imaginations.
The work blends physical theatre, dance, puppetry, voice, installation and theatre of the absurd to expose instinct and contradiction, desire and recoil. We “do not have to be good”, so we wont. This work was presented at The Mature Moves Festival in Hobart, Tasmania, from 23 – 25 September 2016.
