The Earth Song is a carnivalesque look into the crossing paths of consumer society, human behaviour and climate change. Choreographer Sari Palmgren guides her interdisciplinary team to explore our relationship to the environment and to the circulation and use of energy. How are our daily choices made? How can we change them?
During the rehearsal process, the team consults environmental researchers and experts of sustainable development. From these consultations, the team creates songs and forms a one-of-a-kind musical, guided by contemporary movement thinking and improvisation.
