Feral Arts produce a portfolio of performance and movement practitioners including Al Seed, Colette Sadler, Oceanallover, Nic Green, Liz Aggiss, Bex Anson and Dav Bernard (MHz), Mele Broomes, and Sita Pieraccini. Feral support artists making cross artform work and champion makers who explore new performance languages through their practice.
During their independent arts careers spanning the last 14 years they have acted in curatorial and managerial positions on a number of Scotland’s leading arts festivals including National Review of Live Art, Arches Live, Behaviour Festival, Early Days Festival, Glasgay, Into The New, Sound Thought Festival, Solas Festival, Dance House Glasgow’s Winter Fest and Mischief La Bas’
Festival of Death.
They are former programmers of The Arches and between them have spearheaded the curatorial, practical and logistical delivery of several festivals and exhibitions that nurture artistic development and the presentation of risk taking multi-disciplinary art. Central to their ethos is platforming work in unusual and “found spaces” that celebrates the urban canvas of Glasgow.
Feral acted as Associate Producers on Paisley’s UK City of Culture Bid in 2017 and have jointly ran the Edinburgh Fringe 'Autopsy Award' with Summerhall for the last 3 years.
