Wunderbar produces dynamic, creative projects that place the audience at the heart of the experience. We bring our work to unusual places and spaces and invite people to take part; often the work only comes alive if people get involved with it.
Our projects are led by artists, but fuelled by unique contributions from those who take part, responding with creativity and playfulness to issues of relevance to real people, real places and real time.
Wunderbar combines the personal, creative and the critical in a socially charged atmosphere, fostering new ideas for how to live, how to work and how to play.
Every two years these projects are celebrated in a festival involving performance, installation, extraordinary happenings, interaction, social events and games. Events take place in both traditional venues – such as theatres, galleries, arts centres, cinemas – and non-traditional performance spaces, such as shopping centres, hairdressers, private homes, city streets.
From our home in Newcastle, we present work that takes in the city and the surrounding region with a bold, international outlook. Our work is playful, brave and mischievous and across every scale, from the minutest of interactions to grand, city centre spectaculars.
