CULTIVATE, 5min., UK, Dance
Directed by Sima Gonsai
Two dancers ground themselves in soil and ritual as they dance a duet with the earth. Drawing on the success of the 2021 dance film ‘And Breathe’ inspired by the newly introduced Clean Air Zone in Birmingham, ‘Cultivate’ responds to localised climate research about soil health focusing on soil toxic inheritance, farming practices and soil preservation. Told through combining South Asian dance and film, ‘Cultivate' highlights the human interconnectivity of soil and celebrates soil ecosystems.
