environmental dance / Non-anthropocentric movement research
We challenge the notion of evolution that puts human as the center and objective of life’s purposes, thus permeating a utilitarian lens towards the world.
We see the production of disposable values as a form of colonialism that is rapidly and tragically annihilating other species for the benefit of a very few.
As artists we are seeking positive actions to change the way we relate to our environment, and through dance we establish new movement values that encourage ecological balance.
