It is winter. Outside it is cold and wet, but inside we are warm and cosy. In our bath full of bubbles, we play. Time for bed, we clean our teeth, close our eyes and sleep. Outside the wind howls, it gets colder and colder and colder until…The first snowflake falls from the sky…

Join WILDERBEAST for Ice Ice Baby and discover the sights, sounds and textures of the seasons in a playful sensory exploration.

Performed by the company.

Something’s lurking in the dark... Elliot is turning twenty-two and everyone’s leaving him behind. His job’s crap, his friends have moved away, and he’s got this horrible feeling he’s being watched...

Devised by the company, and scored live by an onstage band, In The Light Everything Is Brighter is a surreal, darkly comic exploration of inner torment, loss and tidying your bedroom.

“Monstrously entertaining and wildly imaginative... brilliantly disturbing” — The Reviews Hub
“A company with really exciting ideas” — Exeunt Magazine
