RAW at Wild Roots festival 2023


Friday 2nd, Saturday 3rd, Sunday 4th June

Raw is fast and daring. Aerialists bounce to the beats of the live DJ. RAW is an exploration of the clubbing culture. The story explores the balance between strength and vulnerability, harmony, laughter and tears.

RAW first premiered at Junction Festival Clonmel in 2008 and performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2009. This year Fidget Feet are delighted to return to Wild Roots after the success of our 2022 performance of A Handful of Dreams. This year we are excited to bring a re-imagined 30 minute version of RAW to the Wild Roots audience.
