In the performance “Ilha de Árvores” the artists created an unique micro-forest on a few meters square island on Ria de Aveiro.
The oneiric island seems as a fatamorgana or an utopic land of endangered trees – you can encounter there species that are nearly extinct. Is there still a hope to save them?

“The planting of a tree, especially one of the long-living hardwood trees, is a gift which you can make to posterity at almost no cost and with almost no trouble, and if the tree takes root it will far outlive the visible effect of any of your other actions, good or evil.” 

― George Orwell

  • Plants Dictionary – performance – solo dance performance created in the frame of Residência Artística: fAUNA | habitat de criação at Teatro da Didascália, June 2021, Portugal

In the performance Plants Dictionary the artist gathers on stage several different plant species and relates to them as sentient beings. Plant-like movement and perception become the inspiration for the choreography and motivation to discover how our human sensitivity can be challenged by the sensibility of plants.
