Swamp Cosmos

Swamp Cosmos is an interactive performance that takes place in a wetland - a soundscape that bubbles with sour water, smells and various colours. By camouflaging in the swamp, the participant can explore the flora and fauna as well as all the mysterious sounds and movements of the swamp. We ask ourselves: by camouflaging oneself as an animal, insect or plant, can we approach nature and challenge the perspectives that make humans dominate nature? In an era of climate challenges, we combine artistic, scientific and philosophical perspectives in a choreographed audio installation.
