Somewhere in the gap between screen addiction and a disappearing wilderness...
Join a trio of international dance makers in an outdoor movement workshop to explore our relationship to the natural world, climate change and technology. This is a play of disguises and shapeshifting. Animal, vegetable or mineral? Friend or foe? Using DIY technology, (phones and tablets) we will capture videos and create images with foraged organic matter, collected synthetic materials, and our bodies. We will use the visual, tactile and auditory stimuli from these materials and surrounding environment to inspire our movement. In this highly responsive state of moving while sensing, we might become camouflaged, appear in contrast to the landscape, and emerge as human or other than human forms.
Mary Pearson (US/UK) is an interdisciplinary performance maker whose background includes CI, dance improvisation and comedy, visual art, voice, and experimental theatre. She has toured her solo works FAILURE (& other opportunities for non-linear success)The Sand Dog Cometh, and FoMO, mofos!  in the UK and internationally.
