Using fast-paced contemporary Kathak in dialogue with urban dance styles, hypnotic live and looped tabla music, mesmerising lighting and innovative video projections, Kindred explores humanity’s quest for a harmony between nature and technology.
Kindred delves into recent scientific discoveries around how trees secretly communicate with and support each other through giant underground fungal networks or ‘Earth’s natural internet’. Through the artistry of dance and projection we draw parallels to the way humans in our modern world of technology communicate, and look at what we can learn from the way trees operate in communities, collectively managing resources and working together as one to survive. Come and play in our urban forest.
