We will be reckless, tender and rough. We will run, sweat, rest, carry and fling.
We will be quiet, loud, slow, fast, and always moving.
We are asking what it is to be wild.
We would like to know about it with our bodies - alone, together and with what we don’t yet know. We are not just us.
There are children, adults, water, stones, matches and other ‘goings ons’. Each of us are here, and since each of us are multiple, we are quite a crowd. We would like to go into the wild life. You are welcome.
Wild Life is a live performance that is a meditation and celebration of wildness. Devised and performed by a collective of three children and five adults, and directed by Sarah Hopfinger, this is a fun, playful and wild intergenerational performance, which sits between dance, live art and contemporary performance.
Wild Life is also a part of Luminate: Scotland’s creative ageing festival. Luminate is an annual festival that takes place across the length and breadth of Scotland each October, offering the chance to celebrate creativity, share stories and to explore what ageing means to all of us.

‘Hopfinger’s gung-ho wild bunch is a mix of ages and performance experience . . . who plunge wholeheartedly into what it means to be “wild”. . . the energy and exhilaration is timeless’ 4 stars, The Herald, Mary Brennan
