The project highlights a need to reconnect with our bodies and with the Earth in a sustainable way. Organised by calendar seasons (Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter) … As If Trying Not To Own The Earth focuses both on the growing and preparation of food.
Dublin Dance Festival is excited to present Spring as part of our upcoming 2021 Edition (full programme to be announced soon).
Spring... As If Trying Not To Own The Earth involves two residencies; one with a food grower and one with a food preparer. Via online sessions from her base in Cloughjordan Ecovillage and Cloughjordan Farm, dance artist Rita Marcalo teaches these collaborators to dance, and they teach her to grow and prepare food. The residencies will culminate in the creation of four new film pieces which will be streamed across two days as part of Dublin Dance Festival in May.
Follow along in their journey with weekly videos and tutorials published on the Project YouTube Channel.
