Moving with Nature

Workshop

Ongoing restrictions due to the pandemic have led to a lot of time spent indoors and on the internet. As a result, there is understandably an increased, almost romantic longing for the supposedly healthy nature beyond our four walls. But nature is not in a good state. If we see this crisis as an opportunity, how can we take a step back and see nature as our partner again?

In the workshop, we want to approach nature with all our senses and use our bodily experiences to translate, intervene, collect, document and create impressions. We will climb, run, dance, lie, build and get entangled in bushes and see how this changes our perception and approach to nature.
