jardín salvaje is a sound map and durational dance work that guides the audience through the physical and temporal landscape of Snug Harbor. It is an invitation to observe in detail three solos that take place in the gardens. It is simply an excuse to listen, walk slowly and honor the land as it was, as it is and as it will be. The movement score relates to plants and animals through instinct and listening. It is an insistence on moving the body in unison with the wind, in duet with the water, in dissonance with the leaves of the trees, in accordance with the flies, in trust with the roots. We are interested in multispecies relationships and the legacy of the territory in our bodies.
