TERRA INCOGNITA

The bigger the choice, the faster you know. In your heart. In your gut. The time for a great leap to the beyond is surely the time for great love stories. This is the time when bonds are either strengthened or broken. This is the moment that everything changes:

Emma, this is love. What we have is love, I know it. What's another leap when you're already changing worlds? Will you be with me?

Big movement and bold choices

Ida's character opens herself up to risk, takes chances, makes bold declarations, and ultimately is able to define and go after what she needs to truly feel herself. Ida's performance electrifies this journey.

Over the next year, each of the Wild Space dancers will bring their own version of Terra Incognita to their home cities. They will adapt the work for a unique space in their city and collaborate with local artists to bring the performance to life so that our ballet will be reinterpreted and recontextualized by four different cities.
