A performative frame created by Farid Fairuz

A project coproduced by Solitude Project, The National Centre for Dance in Bucharest and the Colectiv A Association Project cofinanced by the National Cultural Fund Administration (AFCN)

“We Are All Lichens” tests certain limits of the collective imaginary and proposed the overcoming of the boundaries that fragment our perception, with the purpose of creating a new imaginary without the necessity of a correspondent in our immediate reality. In the attempt to explore new possibilities of relating and symbiotic coexistence with our surroundings, four performers experiment fluidly, not so much with everyday objects, artificial and organic materials, plants and textures, but with the frequencies, vibrations, energies and information provided by these.
