Trans:plant tends to social choreography. Inspired by forest-thinking it looks at eco-systems of non-verbal relations within a group of people. All spectators are physically involved. The musical dramaturgy triggers vegetal patterns of the living to re-visit plant intelligence. Plants do not have a brain, but consist of repetitive modules in which potentially all the required abilities are present for their organism to sustain life." As human, we can heighten the energy potential of plant-based resources within us.

 

Procedure

In Trans:plant we invite visitors to transform their bodies on a collective journey through plant and anatomical imagination. All audiences are physically engaged with the resistance limits of everyone (included kids, elderly, wheelcair users, pregnant women, etc.).  Polymorphic music - played live on guitar- is quadraphonically reproduced in the space. The organic sound palette and the play with frequencies activates slight changes in the state of consciousness. Trans:Plant allows viewers to dive into an immersive space of sound. Giudicelli guides the movements of the participating people through different physical states and forms of awareness with the help of her voice, gestures and glances. The choreography is anchored in the group of spectators, they become agents of the performance. Giudicelli increasingly influences the formation of geometric forms shaped by the group itself, which ultimately leads to collective groupings or interlinked movements in the space. The audience will at times lie on a huge carpet and glide through half-sleep phases. 

This is how Trans:plant creates an expansive choreography that enables visitors to experience a sensual aesthetic experience which influences the vegetative nervous system. By tracing the plant intelligence in the human body (nervous system, blood circulation, digestive system, respiratory system, etc.), a performative-physical confrontation with plants, trees, roots plexuses and rhizomes takes place in the theater. The expanded notion of choreography and plant-thinking becomes evident.
