Mexican choreographer Yolanda Morales and her international team imagine a natural scenario on stage and become masters of ceremony. In the form of memories, they celebrate a northern German peatland landscape, an ecosystem threatened by destruction. Memorable colors, smells, sounds, image details and microforms become physical, fluid testimonies of this dying landscape. With songs, choral voices, electronic sounds and shamanic-like repetitions, the dancers conjure up the composing forces of the peatland and dance a homage to the transformative powers of nature.
