NETLA - nældens ambassadører
(Ambassadors of the Nettle)
Bloom Festival 2022
Photographer Mikkel Ulriksen, sound: Mathias Bredholt, edit: Nana Francisca Schottländer
A dual performance consisting of 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.
Concept and artistic direction: Nana Francisca Schottländer
Created in collaboration with the nettles, the contributing dancers/performers Mikkel Mallow and Naya Moll Olsen as well as composer Mathias Bredholt.
Scenography by Plastique Fantastique
Props and costumes created in collaboration with Siri Viola and Ellen Leer
