Wellington Celebrates The Wild Woman

Wellington Celebrates The Wild Woman

When Being Yourself Is The Most Terrifying Thing Of All

A dynamic solo show is set to get wild at Inverlochy Art House this June. Pat-A-Cake Productions’ (The Trickle Down Effect, A Stage of One’s Own) WHERE THE WILD WOMAN IS, celebrates non-verbal communication in a physical solo show by the ‘undeniably captivating’ Ingrid Saker that embraces the highs and lows of life. Directed by Bop Murdoch (The Offensive Nipple show, The Things We Do) it’s a bold, rhythmic, unforgettable sensation of Saker’s own real experience. It's an invitation to radical self-acceptance. It’s a hunt for the empowered woman within.

Where The Wild Woman Is just recently won ‘edgiest show’ and ‘best female performer’ at the 2016 Nelson Fringe Festival during their South Island tour in May. Now, they are back on their home turf for the highly anticipated Wellington season before jetting off to the Melbourne Fringe Festival in September.

Tenacious and empowering’
Courtney Brown, Art Murmurs.

Created and performed by Ingrid Saker who studied at John Bolton Clown School, Long Cloud Youth Theatre and Laboratoire de l'Acteur in Paris. Based on her personal experiences, Saker's inner animal of intuition tears up the lifelong expectations of success that can throw us into a debilitating depression. This intimate physical theatre begins a relationship with acceptance, and with the cyclic nature of genuine experience. What happens inside of us when we get close to those landmarks of success?

This show is an invitation to connect with your primal self and liberate your impulses. There’s a grounding optimism about the inevitable highs and lows in life, and utmost permission to exist within a tribe of deeply flawed, perfectly imperfect, worthy human individuals” says director, Bop Murdoch

With this female tour-de-force at the helm, audiences should expect transformation and a chance to connect with their own inner wild one. Provocative, pithy and painfully necessary, you’ll find WHERE THE WILD WOMAN IS at Inverlochy Art House, Te Aro, Wellington for six shows only over two weeks. Stay after each show for tea and a facilitated wānanga to talk about your experience of it.

“a beautiful reminder of how in physical performances, the interpretation is open, where each person can have a completely unique and individual experience”.
Art Murmurs
