COMPANION

2022

Animals, plants, aliens, ancestors, ghosts, mountains, ocean – the multispecies approach continues recruiting ambassadors with sensorial skills and intuitive forms of knowing. Take for example the horse herd, organized though non-predatory forms of power and leadership and the various group roles of: leader, dominant, nurturer, and sentinel – all assigned to different social and physiological duties necessary for a thriving familial herd. But some things you only get from dancing, from the figure in flight, in the blur of movement, between forms and caught in emergent fantastical embodiments. In this piece six women contemplate the notion of attunement as they dance to their own dynamics and relations. The curiosity. The courage. The reach. My cosmic meeting yours.
