Branching Dialogues Audio Guided Workshop
11:30 - 13:00
Guided via an audio track in a green space of your choice, this workshop invites you into an outdoor immersive, physical, poetic, and individual journey with a tree, with wood and branching worlds. It is part of Vanessa Grasse's The Land We Are project, which offers embodied experiences of ecology and relationality to re-invigorate our connection with the more-than-human world, revive our curiosity and care for trees, the land, natural ecosystems and our ecological sociality.
Vanessa is a multidisciplinary dance artist. Her work creates vehicles for somatic experiencing and transforming public spaces, through site-responsive, ecological, improvisational, participatory, and cross-disciplinary practices. Her practice questions how we exist and inhabit different environments, how we co-exist with human and non humans, and what having an experience of ecology, relationality and entanglement might be. Her works have toured across the UK, Europe and East Asia. She teaches for various Universities and wider communities.
