A hopeful dance work that spans a century, launching in 2021 and completing beyond our lifetimes, in 2120.

 

Taking place every 5 years upon a hand woven carpet, 100-strong communities of dancers come together to engage in a practice of slowing the body and mapping the moment.

 

An act of faith, whereby it’s continuation is entrusted to future generations, this human-scale yet epic work celebrates the embodied knowledge of the dancer whilst asking, how can we use long term thinking in order to be better ancestors?
