Abstract: 
  • The piece is a culmination of an artistic research project meandering around movement, poetry, and the implications of the anthropocene. It is a testament to knowledge travelling in and through our bodies, resonating in the tissues, finding solace in the corporeal poetics. Words become movement and movement becomes words while the three dancers find a timespace where their bodies briefly merge with that of an old pine tree, waves of an ocean, many root systems, remembering both their mortality and the joy of being alive in the thick present.
