“Eco Movements” is a choreographic investigative project that probes the impact that pollution and waste have on the lives of individuals, leading to climate anxiety and how climate resilience can be achieved with the help of moving the body.
Through the project, we aim to choreographically translate the vision, conceptual framework and method of eco-performance, placing the interconnectivity/fusion between the natural environment and the body as two inseparable dimensions of choreographic creation at the centre.
The choreographic ecoperformative artistic research will be declined in a series of artistic products, the most important being 4 choreographic ecoperformative installations and an eco-videoperformance, which will be presented in: Bucharest, Brasov- physically and online (an eco-videoperformance) – Portugal- AgitLab, Timișoara.
