NETLA - nældens ambassadører
(Ambassadors of the Nettle)
Performance consisting of two parts; a participatory scored journey into intimate encounters and exchanges between humans and nettles; and a choreographic exploration of the life cycle of nettles in the here and now of the large patch of stinging nettles in Søndermarken.
A ritual of exchange. A celebration of connectivity, reciprocity, collapse, decay, rebirth and pleasure.
