Body Meets Space
What if what we think changes the quality of what surrounds us? What if I cry and the
river water overflow? So believes a Colombian tribe, who considers the earth as an
immense woven matter of thoughts on which the Sun rests its life force. On the other
hand, in the face of quantum physics, two particles that once contact each other thus
continue whatever distance separates them in time and space.

The GreenMan dance conference talks about the sensible relationship between body and landscape, between man and his territory. In its genesis, the research was based on the encounter with a specific landscape - of the Cévennes, South of France - and with some inhabitants of that same territory, who use their bodies as a tool to perceive landscape in their profession: a geobiologist, a transhumance shepherd, a dowser, a storyteller, among others.
Based on the intersection of creative processes of two apparently distinct worlds: landscape architecture and contemporary dance, the techniques developed by these same people are put in relation with somatic practices used by different contemporary choreographers and somatic practitioners: Susan Klein, Deborah Hay, Benoît Lachambre, Fabrice Ramalingom, Hupert Godart, among others.
The result is a dance conference, which creates an intimacy with the audience and a specific relationship with space. Each conference is redesigned in loco. At the moment of presentation, the interpreter welcomes somatic techniques in real time while exposing and developing the theme, from the perspective of a landscape architect, choreographer and a dancer.
