Wild Island Project 2017

The project is part of the 10th edition of Holstebro Festuge (Festive Week) 2017, created by Odin Teatret: The Wild West – Roots and Shoots: Re-think. http://www.odinteatret.dk/events/holstebro-festuge-(festive-week)/2017

The Wild Island is a project of participatory art:

-an artistic installation on the river of the Danish city of Holstebro, a platform-stage made by six wooden rafts (each of 3,5m x 4,5m) built by the local scout groups. The platform will host works of local artists, for eg. the sculptures made by Helle Freja Hansen.

-a community event that involves citizens, local associations, schools, scout groups, local and international artist groups. Every day different guests will populate the island from 5pm at 6pm.

June 17: we will create the final feast event in collaboration with Holstebro Regatta // Reb & Ror, which will bring the whole river to life.

The theme of the next Festuge is the Wild West and the conceptual red thread of our Island will be the Wild Man; the wild side present in each of us, linked to instinct, to the totemic animal, the wild human still present in pagan rituals, in rural communities of various countries of the world, full of symbols which have the power to connect man with nature, with life cycles and seasons, sowing and harvesting, with the four elements. A wild man who exorcises fears and regenerates, blesses the community events.
