“We cannot solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them” – Albert Einstein
Frith is sick. She can’t stop drawing pictures of forests, and there’s the strange figure she sees in the mirror. But when she disappears, Tura, her husband, starts to search, which begins a chain of interwoven events plunging the figures on a voyage that reaches into the mythic heartland of our woods and the wildernesses that live there.
Forests has been a three-year project in the making; championing the interplay between movement, song, cultural heritage and symbolic imagery. Forests is an ode for our time, an investigation on perception and connection in modern times, placing the performer and audience at the centre of the urgent question of how we relate to the natural world.
