In this film Eden's Cave Company discuss the making of Forests, performed in February this year at The House.
Forests is a three-year project in the making. Championing the interplay between movement, song, cultural heritage and symbolic imagery, it places both performer and audience at the centre of the urgent question of how we relate to the natural world.
The company discuss their lineages of practice, developing a pedagogy of training and improvisation, the importance of 'expedition' in their research, and the integral value of living and working at the ASHA Centre in the Forest of Dean as they developed their material. A rich and fascinating conversation on what it means to create work in a time of ecological and human crisis, and through doing so seeking ways of transforming the artists’ total process.
