How alive… how toxic? It’s a paradigm within a living tree using a digital microscope. We will travel around the tree and its surroundings by closely observing its texture and colors thanks to technology, looking carefully we could observe the social impact on nature, as polluted as it is sustainable.
The performance takes place in a forest, mixing nature, human being and technology. The performer will use a microscope like an extension of her body, creating an intimate and sensitive connection with the forest. Thanks to technology we’ll enter inside the moss, the wood, flowers… We’ll play with the nature’s colors, saturating and adding light, creating new ways in synergy.
