The dancer claims to be able to communicate with a plant installed on stage. For her, the first step to an ecological change is attention and communication, and she tries to develop her medium powers to communicate with other species.
To access this different kind of communication, she needs to go through a threshold, to offer something from herself, to do a dance that contains some ordeals. These hardships allow her to unveil very intimate things about herself and on human nature.
Dance gives shape to interior, psychic and emotional landscapes. At the same time the folds of the interior opening outwards, it reveals the body as a landscape and geography of the entire universe. In the background, the Phoenix, the bird that dies and is reborn from its ashes, implies the cyclical nature of things. The matter of the body, trembling or tense, deep or sensual, is offered to the scene. Then, to the spectators. Then to the earth, to the air, to the water, to the fire.
Between pretense and truth, between games and reality, between life and scene, the limits are strangely blurred. We pierce the surface and touch the paradoxes of ritual.
