Dancing with the Grand Firs
This creative process is about forming a relationship with living trees, learning to negotiate movement in a duet with another species, contemplating a different sense of time, place and way of being in the world. The movement vocabulary and choreography will be unearthed as we take time to experience the cycles of the ecosystem. Our task will be to draw out stories that are written into the forest to illuminate the delicate balance that exists between humanity and all other life on earth.
