In pursuit of some answers to the question: why do ‘we’ (a Western ‘we’) abhor nature?, this project examines the roots of the “flight from nature” in the common experience of being subject to a mother. The multidisciplinary project involves an eventual hybrid performance in June of 2020, supported by collaborative research with performance artists and dance artists (first phase–summer 2019–involved Vancouver-based contemporary dance-artists Lucas Wilson-Bilbro and Avery Smith).
