Ghosts of the Forest

Ghosts of the Forest is born from the merger between Marcus Maeder artistic foray in capturing sounds from the Amazon Region and Yara Costa research with the indigenous expression of identity in the Amazon and the choreographies developed for the company Índios.com.

 

From the approximation between sound and movement, a new set of work is born that tries to blur the boundaries between body and forest, science and knowledge and reflect on the possible disappearance of the tropical forest and its human and non-human inhabitants. The work is a partnership between Brazil and Switzerland, supported by the Pro Helvetica Coincidencia programme and it will invite us to reflect on the acceleration of extermination of life and its traces due to the coronavirus and the current political situation in the Amazon.
