Voice of the Trees
A multi-media event including film, dance and visual art
Location: MTU gallery on Grand parade, Cork City.
10:00-5:30pm May 21st, with dance performance at 4:30pm
Film: Tree Prayer, Tree People
This film evokes the power of trees to nurture our spirits, as well as the earth. Through personal storytelling, ephemeral images of trees and people, the film explores both our connection to nature and the need for nature to have it's own political voice.
Dance: Trees matter
This 20 minute dance piece is a response to trees as a source of spiritual strength, as well as a source of inspiration in tackling climate change, biodiversity loss and deforestation. The dancers will wear dresses they created through working with eco art processes.
The visual art will include pieces by various artists engaged in nature both as a subject and as an artistic collaborator itself. The exhibit will include eco-printing both on cloth and paper, as well as photography and textiles art.
This event is a collaboration between Creativity and Change, MTU; Greenspaces for Health; and New Moon Dance company with funding from Irish Aid.
