To “rewild” is to re-connect to the wild within—to see ourselves not as separate from nature but as a part of nature. It is to defy our life-long experience of domestication, what we know, and how things should be.
The ReWilding Project is an interdisciplinary solo performance, featuring text, dance, live music and some technology. It is one woman’s quest to tackle our modern neurosis, sense of loss and search for hope – with a dose of humor.
Nearly every day we are bombarded with an onslaught of horrific news feeds and dire scientific prognoses:
- “Arctic ice melting faster and earlier as scientists demand action”, The Guardian
- “50% of all species have disappeared in the past 20 years,” World Wildlife Fund
How do we, amidst the affluence of Western Europe, respond to these seemingly far-removed crises? How do the body and psyche of the individual, human mammal respond to the worldwide devastation of our natural environment? Perhaps dolphins have the answers to what we are looking for.
