This August Sadler’s Wells will return to the Wilderness Festival for the second consecutive year. Set in the heart of the Cotswolds, Wilderness offers audiences an eclectic programme of live music, theatre and contemporary art.
Joining a diverse line up including comedy, cabaret and immersive theatre, we will present work from Pepa Ubera, one of the dance artists we are supporting through Sadler’s Wells’ Summer University programme, as well as Breakin’ Convention’s Freestyle Funk Forum.
Pepa Ubera’s The Machine of Horizontal Dreams draws on kundalini and tantric yoga practices to examine how we relate to each other, creating a playful and sacred space for audiences and performer to interact and explore the senses. At the same time a dance work and a shared experience, the performance allows different situations to develop and viewers to choose what to engage with.
Breakin’ Convention’s Freestyle Funk Forum is an evening of hip hop-infused theatre inspired by improvisatory comedy classic Whose Line is it Anyway?. Hosted by Sadler’s Wells’ Associate Artist and Breakin’ Convention’s artistic director Jonzi D, the show features a series of skits incorporating hip hop dance, beatboxing, turntablism and rap, informed by audience participations and suggestions.
Wilderness will take place in Oxfordshire’s Cornbury Estate between 3 and 6 August 2017.
