THE PERFORMANCE ECOLOGY PROJECT
in collaboration with Quasimondo Physical Theatre

The Performance Ecology Project is a research project/performance that explores how somatic practices can enhance our experience of meaning and value in living nature. Over five weekends this Fall, three actors, a dancer, a musician, and two poets will meet at the Morton Arboretum near the Riverside Branch of the Urban Ecology Center. Local professional teachers will lead them in sessions of yoga, tai chi, mindfulness, improvisational movement, and theater games. Then, with senses open, the performers will go into the woods, looking for encounters with other species. With the help of guest director Brian Rott of Quasimondo Physical Theatre, their stories, songs, and poems will go into a “performance report” of their journeys.
