In her new piece, Blanca Li offers a mesmerizing and sensitive journey into a shifting environment, commenting on the beauty, power, vitality and fragility of the world.
 

For Blanca Li, to focus her attention on the future of the planet in 2017 is more than a no-brainer. It is an imperative. Four years ago she explored the world of robots. Now, as a “logical follow-up”, she takes on the relationships between humans and nature. This is not an activist statement, but an organic show that conjures the breath of air, the coolness of the rain, the dance of a falling leaf, etc.  Whatever keeps our ecosystem balanced in the midst of an ecological crisis and climate skeptic controversies.  To implement these sensitive interactions with our environment, the choreographer and her scenic designer developed an original set, a pervasive and ever-shifting decor that   in turn becomes cloud, earth, sky or wind. Set to music developed from “natural” sounds, the bodies of the fourteen dancers move in unison conveying a universal message: “The responsibility of us all is to prepare the future and protect what surrounds us.”
