a bioart performance
an experience of communication
Plants Embassy is at home in Boyarskye palaty for pleasing encounters with people and for establishing new lines of communication. A human being experiences issues in arranging with his/her neighbour about amicable mutual interaction; a human being is afraid of everything that is new, incomprehensible, unknown. The performance Flora Sapiens is a possibility of recognition, contact, change. Pondering over the importance of trees-mosses-flowers for a human being, and how difficult it is for them to live with us in a busy megapolis, within streams of cars, in a sack of paving asphalt. There is a pause for thought about a new distribution of roles/new responsibilities.
A theatrical research, which excludes actors-performers, becomes a tool for discovering a nonexisting "protocol" of communication, where anthropical and non-anthropical could speak in the character of equitable dialoguers.
So to get a personal experience of communicating with plants, the audience would be offerred an audio-visual trip among installations in microgroups.
