Carol Brown | LungSong [screen dance, artist talk] + Q&A Charles Koroneho

Live Presentation

As dance artists, breathing is essential to what we do and, like the weather, air is our medium. But how do we expand awareness and consciousness between our human dancing breaths and the diurnal ‘breaths’ of the planet? LungSong is a feminist sci-fi quest, drawing attention to the deep ecological relation between human and planetary lungs. Air, atmosphere, breathing and cosmology are intimately related. Nature courses through us. We are testing the air. Being breathed by the planet. On air. Releasing and holding breaths. Engaging in inspiration and expiration, we are living and dying archives of breath, resonating diaphragmatic volumes in atmospheres of change.  LungSong, shot in a remote weather station in Central Otago, Aotearoa NZ, and performed by Neža Jamnikar, Maryam Bagheri Nesami and Emila Rubio, is a protest and a lament.
