Fluid Resilience shares the subtle and amplified connection of water in Nature through a lens of socio-ecological Resilience, in the processes of reconnecting to the biosphere.

↪ Taking inspiration from Resilience theory and practice
↪ Imbued with dance research in the Fluid Body; Infused by decades of curiosity, wonder, and awe with it’s complexity, movement and consciousness
↪ Complex Adaptive Social-Ecological System theory as a score
↪ Practice of the movement of the fluids of the body, moving the body
↪ Earth’s water shapes and forms land, embodied: its precarity, preciousness, vitality and resilience
↪ The sound of water, light movement with water: An installation space to expand the intimate, and expose the dynamic connective Nature of water
↪ We are essentially water
↪ Water is essential
