Life of Tree

Category: Show

Life of Tree is an installation consisting of dresses, inspired by remarkable and historical women. Like Regine Beer or Simone de Beauvoir. All these women made a significant contribution to history with their courage, strength, intelligence and doing what others have not done before. In Life of Tree the dresses are set up next to each other. The dance performance, which joins the installation, introduces the different characters. The audience is invited afterwards to come stand underneath the dresses, where they can hear music and lyrics, which have been written as an ode to these inspiring women. Life of Tree is more than an installation with a dance performance. It’s a meeting point, a memorial, a resting place where you can observe, listen and enjoy quietly. Here the spectator can find a calm and can honor the dead, so history will never be forgotten.
