Wild Access is an interdisciplinary performance series that takes place in public space since 2021. Squares, parks, sports fields, former industrial areas – each new site is taken as the starting point for an immersive performance that explores both documented events and invented futures. Honing in on the site’s history, architecture and landscape, Wild Access seeks to draw attention to the hidden ecologies of the location’s wildlife and the traces left by humans in the age of the Anthropocene.

The productions are a hybrid format between audio walk and performance: the audience is led through the site by night, while they listen to a soundtrack and encounter live dance and light interventions along the way. The mobile journey of the body amplifies the sensorial experience of place, aiming to bring us closer to our environment and our local surroundings.
