Wildworks is a theatre company that chooses to stray from the path and invites participants and audiences on physical and emotional journeys that celebrate the epic in the everyday. Anyone can join us and everyone is invited!
I AM KEVIN is a new show for summer 2022 and we need your help! The last two years have been very challenging for theatre freelance creatives and especially for those early in their career. We want to create a range of training opportunities on our delivery team and for three of those roles to be paid employment.
Your support will make it possible for us to offer employment and on the job training for 8 weeks for...
- Technical Assistant- supporting and learning from the sound and lighting technical teams
- Costume Assistant- supporting and learning from the costume and wardrobe team
- Community Engagement Coordinator- supporting and learning from the Community Engagement team to work with the 100+ community participants and volunteers ensuring they are looked after throughout the project
The roles will run through July and August, joining us at the same time as the majority of the wider professional team. The posts will be open to anyone who feels they would benefit from a training opportunity and we are also committed to creating opportunities to those that identify as facing barriers to the arts. It is essential these are paid opportunities as many people cannot afford to give that amount of time without an income.
With your support we will also coordinate numerous student work placements. This fund will support their travel and catering expenses and things they need e.g. costume or equipment.
You scratch our back...
In return we have some brilliant rewards to thank you for your support including early access to tickets which we expect to be in high demand, following two years without a big show in Cornwall, so don't miss this opportunity to jump the queue!
What is I AM KEVIN?
‘My mother stands at the water’s edge.
At the water’s edge stands a tree.
At the water’s edge, on the very edge,
at the water’s edge… is me.’
A prophecy predicts that a child born of darkness will have the power to end everything. ‘I am Kevin’ is the quest of one boy to find the light.
This summer… Wildworks invites you to let your imagination run wild on a journey of impossibility. Take a deep dive into the darkest depths of your consciousness and rewrite the stories that try to define us.
A contemporary myth that teeters on the edge of what is real and what is not.
A provocation to rediscover the power and possibility that lies beneath the surface of us all.
A bedtime story to set the world on fire.
‘If thoughts create things….
then surely you can imagine anything into existence.
You can dream anything into reality’
