The project consists of the journey of a Westphalian camper that crosses the most remote and sometimes wild places that surround our cities, carrying a small group of dancers and a musician.
At each stage the musician will give a concert using the sounds of the environment in which he is, while the dancers, as in the sighting of strange animals, are often seen in the distance. Each time these dances present a different set-up that is dispersed into the surrounding landscape, as if the dancing body and the landscape itself became one.
This series of performances on the road is a tribute to all those forms of existence different from ours, to those presences that appear to our eyes as aliens, existing and non-existent at the same time. They are all animals and plants, but they are also the stranger and the different. They form the fabric of the landscape, but in the landscape they merge until they disappear. They are light and evanescent presences like those of animals, camouflaged forms where the boundary between the body and the surrounding is always uncertain. They are impossible plant intelligences. It is the stranger who is here and elsewhere at the same time. It is the different that we do not understand.
The places of performance will be announced 24 hours in advance via gps location notification.
