Gaia – Be the Bee


You may have notcied there is a dance element to this conference.

Here is a bit about it:

“Gaia” presents an original chronicle of human society, of our relationship with nature and fellow human beings, of female existence in a constant struggle for emancipation and survival. The performance focuses on female figures traveling in time, transforming the definition of female nature and the natural environment by following the “dogmas of the times”… or perhaps they define them?

In this particularly aquatic eco-artistic journey we will have as companions the Snake Goddess and other primitive and modern characters that emerge from times that we associate with innocence, romance, harmony with nature. We are witnessing their mutation, martyrdom, revival, even their death, hoping to experience a kind of
renaissance that will co-ordinate with humility and reverence, awe and gratitude to the divine natural phenomena and the rich goods of Mother Earth.
