The research has been awarded funding from the city of Berlin, in the frame of DIS-TANZ-SOLO, and will take place in green areas in Wedding between June and November 2022. 

The process will be documented here.

Urban Plantarium is a movement research practice where I bring together urban foraging practices with the movement method I developed in SODA. The research aims at combining ethnobotanical knowledge of edible plants, with somatic movement practices (like plant meditation and eco-somatic dance) and methods of holistic awareness. In the movement research simple gestures of recognising, picking plants, will be the starting point for choreographic encounters between the natural environment and the body.
