Abandoning the studio and theater space.
Turning to nature.

Listening to trees.
Metamorphosing into stone.

Following the ever curving
and undulating

Slipping on ice,
stumbling on stones,
sliding in snow.

Lying in heather
rain on my face.

Burned out
from modern life.

People
soaking in the sun.

  Processing with trees is a collaboration with individual trees in different locations in Stockholm, Sweden during the autumn and winter of 2015 to 2016. Where the movements of the trees, however slow strongly influenced the choreography and was very much part of it. It is a lo-fi video work made by and with Anna Lord, as dancer, editor and videographer and co-choreographer (together with the trees). Screened on the 12th of March 2016 at Smoke screen studios in Stockholm and on the 4th of July 2018 at Tomma Rum Artist residency in Västervik.
