About performance

This performance is inspired by nature.

Trees grow rooted in the ground. Curbing the elements of nature takes time, adaptation to the environment is slow and meditative. This performance, inspired by nature, is about trees, or about people who are vital to each other in order to communicate, breathe, act, survive, and relentlessly seek their fern flower.
