2020 // TÅRNBY, BRØNSHØJ IN COPENHAGEN
Officinale Tours is a love project in collaboration with Andreas Haglund, coming to life in the crossroads of Andreas’s foraging enthusiasm and my curiosity in plants’s healing properties during the first lockdown in 2020, a time that highlighted the importance of our relation to nature and ancient wisdoms.
Officinale Tours is a site-specific educational botanical-dance performance.
It's an attempt to create stronger links of empathy to the natural world around us. We build relationships, strengthen long forgotten kinships and direct our attention to a parallel universe that is always there. The work aligns to re-calibrate the connection between the human and the non-human, works its way from the roots upwards toward environmental awareness.
