April 11, 2019 - Comments Off on THE ORDER OF NATURE

THE ORDER OF NATURE

François Ghebaly and LA Dance Project present a three part screening series curated by Andrea Franco.

At a moment when we have become aware of humanity’s negative impact on the earth, we also seem to be moving towards an understanding of nature as indivisible from us. Nature responds to us, to our connection with it, to how we interfere with it, and to the myths that surround it. The three part screening series reflects on our relationship with nature, the current state of the Anthropocene, and the psychic space shared between film and nature. The works offer distinctive ways to see and think about the world, and an opportunity to detach from the currently reality in order to connect to it in a renewed way.
