Rozman takes a critical yet productive stand on the issue of constructing a living environment, and evaluates past human development by means of a metaphorical transformation, fusing a dead landscape with living organisms. As a result, the performance at the same time curses the frenzied world of (post)industrial alienation and worships the persistent spiralling efforts at a humanist search for meaning in this relationship between the human and the natural. It does this by adopting not a societal, but above all a sensuous and ecological view of the possibility of forming the contours of a new human existence in today’s “post-natural” world.
The performance combines elements of dance, performance and live set design in two closely connected parts.
