Lineage – rottrådar




A network of roots and mycelium, entangled in symbiotic exchange. Bodily transmission as the qualitative, deepened process. To be the host animal to that which must live, to offer our fur as a reserve for a wilderness to flourish.



Through unfolding a choreography from the experience archived within the body, of two different but yet, because of their encounter within the same body, related dance forms: butoh and nordic folk dance, we are offered to engage in their common world of transparencies, lines, shifting layers and becomings.
