A dance production which explores the relationship that humans share with land. It is very interesting to note how a unidirectionally dependent relationship has created a network of links that are highly metaphorical and parasitic. Yet land has taken all this and much more, continuing to rejuvenate and provide, but for how long? How do we as humans strike a balance between development and sustainability?
