Encounters, a live performance combining dance, yards and yards of paper, original music and photography, addresses what happens when humankind encounters the natural world. The genesis of the project was found in the natural world, how various plants share the same space, grow, and establish physical relationships between them, sometimes symbiotically living off each other, sometimes growing either in spite, or at the expense of each other. The work evokes the strength and vulnerability of both nature and people as well as the results of the convergence.
