eek & wild make fresh, fun and hope-filled work. Ella, Emily & Katie are dance artists and great friends, finding joy in dancing and making together.

In summer 2021, they spent time in the Pavilion Dance Studios exploring ideas for children using everyday objects. 

They’ve recently been artists in residence at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital  – Ella tells us more:

“We are delighted to be artists in residence at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital through the CW+ Arts programme. We’ve been developing pop-up performances on paediatric wards and outpatient departments. The pop-up performances offer children and young people the opportunity to choose a dance they want to see from our menu. Anything from Autumnal leaves to shopping! The performances also involve elements of 1:1 interaction. 

The first seedlings of this project were tested and developed during our residency at PDSW in the Summer. It was a time for us to explore and play with ideas for pop-up, choice based performances. We loved being creative together in the beautiful studio at PDSW and we are so grateful to the team at PDSW for supporting us at the early stages of this project. 

At the moment we are focusing on these pop-up performances and we are keen to create some more to enlarge our menu choice.”
