AN ALLENDALE-BASED theatre company will bring their new project to Hexham.

The Wilding Theatre Project by Miscreations Theatre is an investigation into our relationship with the natural world around us.

The group is currently delivering workshops and performances during a series of residencies across the region.

Four 'Dreaming Giant' sculptures are also appearing for local communities to discover, which can be revisited at different times of the year to see how they are becoming ‘wilded’.

Rebecca Jameson, Director and Performer of Miscreations said: “Wilding - also known as ‘re-wilding’ - is about letting nature take care of itself, enabling natural processes to shape land and sea, repair damaged ecosystems and restore degraded landscapes, replenishing the world’s vital biodiversity. Wilding offers us all the opportunity to develop a more healthy and sustainable relationship with the natural world.

"Theatre offers us the opportunity to explore this with creativity, imagination and no small amount of magic hence Wilding Theatre."

Their residency at the Sele will be from July 11-16, and there will be a free public performance of the Wilding Theatre Show at 6pm on Friday, July 15.

For information about tickets, contact the Queens Hall Box Office on 01434 652477.

The project has received funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Northumberland County Council, Queens Hall Arts Centre Hexham, Northumberland National Parks, and TCR Hub Barnard Castle.
