In response to an open R&D call in January 2021, Cornish Dance Theatre company Cscape received a commission to explore a digital outcome for the Hunt for the Wild Words project.

A team a professional artists and students from Falmouth University worked together to create a number of films and interactive digital ideas.

Inspired by the idea that words from nature are being eradicated from the Children’s Oxford English Dictionary, Hunt for the Wild Words works with humour, curiosity and adventure to explore some of the big questions around species loss and climate change.

Created for families, and ideal for all ages.

The team are now looking for partners and venues interested to become involved in the support and development of this promenade piece, premiering initially in Cornwall in the Summer of 2022, with plans to re-work and tour across indoor and outdoor settings, in the UK, during 2023.

The show will be accompanied by an extensive programme of community and school’s engagement, to include an in-depth digital offer suitable for both audience development and educational resources that further explore the themes learned during the performance.

In addition, Cscape are working with an expert sign performer to embed access within the heart of the show.
