“Woods” premiere in Vilnius
Bosque / Woods premiere in Vilnius (Lithuania) at the international contemporary dance festival New Baltic Dance.
The performance that pursues the idea of collective practice and explores impermanence and instability of the body, nature and climate. Inviting local participants to join in, inverted bodies change the city landscape and question the ways in which a body can resist, persist. The bodies’ struggle to remain upside down calling attention to the struggle of nature itself – the city concrete, the lack of nature, the climate changes, the missing trees and the forgotten woods.
Bosque / Woods is a Big Pulse Dance Alliance co-production, the project selected for the Big Pulse Open Air Programme, co-produced by Naujasis Baltijos Šokis/New Baltic Dance (Lithuania), International Dance Festival TANEC PRAHA (The Czech Republic), Sismògraf Dance Festival (Catalonia – Spain) and Julidans (The Netherlands), co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the EU.
