Il Bosco che non c’è | Neverwood is a path of research and co-creation that, through the poetic language of performance and dance, aims to address the theme of perception in the relationship with the natural world. The performance sheds light on the natural forces that surround us and invites participants to navigate in an elastic space using their extra-daily sensory perception. The performance/installation has the power of a meditation and the depth of an abyss; it is a path to approach the practices of the body and the spiritual dimension of the human being and the world around us, starting with an accompaniment to individual and collective reflection on the fragility of human existence and climate change. Through sensory exploration, meditation and contemplation of the forest, we experience the world around us and its hidden nature (made of flows, energy and abstract elements).
