...As If Trying Not To Own The Earth

Watch and participate in a new dance & food activism project by Instant Dissidence.

Spring... As If Trying Not To Own The Earth examines our connection with nature, and our role within our food system and the wider context of climate justice.It involves two residencies; one with a food grower and one with a food preparer. Via online sessions from her base in Cloughjordan Ecovillage and Cloughjordan Farm, dance artist Rita Marcalo teaches these collaborators to dance, and they teach her to grow and prepare food. The residencies will culminate in the creation of four new film pieces which will be streamed across two days as part of Dublin Dance Festival in May.

Follow along in their journey with weekly videos and tutorials published on the Project Youtube Channel.
