INTO THE WILD

Into the Wild

 

Into the Wild is a satirical, physical and visual theatre performance that through dark comedy guides us to restoring our relationship with nature, exploring the ambivalent relationship humans have with the natural world. The performance revolves around modern humans, survivors, hikers, berry pickers - you and me - who, coated in forever chemicals, trudge through birch forests and swamps, a Thermacell in our left hand, a mushroom basket in our right, a panda bear tucked under our arm and toilet paper poetry dangling from our pants. Two relentless narrators explore taboo topics related to nature, guiding us from environmental destruction, species extinction and pulp mills to healing rituals and complete silence, and where our desire for comfort can take us under just the right conditions.
