Breath of the world
Monday 2 October 2023
Theatro Rematias, Chalandri @ 21:00
The new choreographic work of Mariela Nestora / YELP danceco. focuses on breath as the primary relationship of the body with the world.
Plants are -and have always been- our most important co-inhabitants on the planet. We are in a reciprocal relationship: humans breathe in the oxygen plants exhale and plants breathe in the carbon dioxide humans produce. How can we restore the ecological affinities that bind us in a rapidly climate-changing world?
Dancers and musicians compose the ephemeral organism of this performance that can be perceived as part of another larger ecosystem. The choreography explores the function of breathing as a biological, psychological and spiritual node associating different species and cultures. Breath of the world activates empathy and proposes the experience of a performance as a gathering of different species.
The air we breathe is not a purely geological or mineral reality but rather the breath of other living beings. In breath we depend on the lives of others. Emanuele Coccia
