Up to Nature

Nic Green mit Beth Hamer - Slowlo

“We are here to awaken from the illusion of our separateness.”
Thich Nhat Hanh

In Slowlo, British performance artist Nic Green working with Beth Hamer will be unveiling the wild being, the woman. To accomplish this she and guerrilla gardener and boat builder Hamer will be creating a moon-shaped dwelling located somewhere between sculpture, performance, and architectural elements. The structure brings the view for the surroundings sharply into focus: sky, the Earth, birds, those around us – and will show the fascination that they radiate. While the sun is slowly setting, the focus of the performance shifts from the surroundings to the inner landscape of performer Green, who will be releasing from inside her La Loba – the wolf woman. The idea that humans are the centre of the universe is put to the test by La Loba, and also draws parallels between the taming of nature and the nature of the woman, which Green leaves undisguised and which breaks out of her entirely uncensored, uncultivated and unfiltered.

Up to Nature is a co-production of ANTI – Contemporary Art Festival Kuopio, Black Box Teater Oslo, brut Wien, Inbetween Time Bristol, and Maska Ljubljana. In co-operation with the Wiener Festwochen. With the kind support of the European Commission.
