Force of the Sweeping Dune by Sarah Trouche
The performance poses the primordial relationship human society has with Mother Nature. It highlights the notion of living things and how we relate to Nature with a capital N. Ultimately, you become an ecological and eco-sensitive body and there’s a reflection around eco-feminism, the ancient global concept of the green woman. Within the monumental landscape, we are connected to and humbled by the sediments and strata of natural force: ground, wind and light.
