Green Move

Japanese scientists have discovered that people, who spend a lot of time in nature, have better immune systems, suffer less from stress and are less likely to be diagnosed with cancer. This has set off a trend (at least in Asia): forest bathing – walking through woodlands, while perceiving nature with all your senses. This fascinates Canan Erek. Her choreography Green Move visited various spa gardens, which have always been places of healing. The dance performance roamed within the different parks and took the audience with it on a stroll. Erek’s piece was the second Ensemble Mobil, initiated by the Tanzplattform Rhein-Main.

” The magic of Green Move lies precisely in the non-individual, when the dancers do not execute forms but seem to abandon themselves to the dynamics, the bending, turning, pulling, sinking….This does not come across as a message or a deceleration command, but remains art. A sensitive one.”
