“The new gold standard…Wilderness has finally put Los Angeles on the immersive theatre map” LA Weekly

Wilderness works internationally to push the envelope of the traditional theatre-going experience. Inspired by unexplored and uninhabited spaces, we create experiential and interdisciplinary theatrical events that disrupt the boundaries between observer and observed and offer immersive live experiences in a variety of traditional and non-traditional spaces.

Founded in 2011 by Artistic Director Annie Saunders, the award-winning company has been described as “a company of theatre makers whose body of work will, in time, define a new generation of artists.” (Madani Younis, Artistic Director, Bush Theatre, London)

Wilderness began in the spirit of adventure and curiosity: a deep drive to explore that which is hidden in plain sight. The company makes its work in periods of research, experimentation, improvisation and development which brings together performers, designers, writers, artists and experts from across disciplines, with crucial support from many partners.
