2020 – Naja Lee Jensen // DARKNESS AND NATURE (Experimental interdisciplinary performance)

THE SHOW

Darkness and Nature is an interdisciplinary, experimental performance where sound, smell, light, darkness, tactile touch and site-specificity creates an encompassing sensorial universe for the audience.

Darkness and Nature invites the audience to experience their individual perception of the world while lying in a tent in the dark. The piece questions if we, humans, can re-establish a lost connection with Nature by surrendering to darkness. With the current focus on man-made climate change, perhaps what we need is darkness to rediscover ourselves as a part of Nature?

Please note that the audience will experience the performance while lying in a 1 person tent. 

THE COMPANY

Naja Lee Jensen occupies the in-between space between stage art and fine arts. Her interest is directed towards the relationship between perception, body and space.
