Working, performing and being in nature is inspiring. It can spark the imagination and create the potential for an action. Capturing ephemeral moments through performance opens the opportunity for it's poignancy to be revisited and shared. Artist and curator Johannes Zits will present a diverse mix of works where the performers are interacting with uncultivated or rural surroundings. Video works by Cherie Sampson (USA/Finland), Agnes Nedregard (Norway), Zohar Melinek (Israel), Michaël Cros (France) and Canadian's Denise Kenny, Anna Sarchami, Jol Thomson, Luis Jacob, Mario Côté and Françoise Sullivan.
