Epidermis – The Fragile Skin of the Earth is a contemporary dance work that centres on Earth's current condition and future. This poetic work contrasts human skin and the earth’s skin – its layers of soil – as intimate and shared, and leads its audience to something we may be losing.
The work explores ways in which to go beyond the surface, under each other’s skin, and to create something that is both intensive and empirical, personal and common. This common shared space, in which the fragile skin of living creatures metaphorically meets the incredibly vast skin of the earth, creates a fictive environment divided into four parts:
The locus of corpus and circulation.
The locus of repetition and destruction.
The locus of reason and definition.
The locus of chaos and dying.
