On this website we gather video works, interviews and documentations of traditional nature-based dances by international dance artists. All videos and interviews have been produced by the participating artists independently in their respective regions. They reflect the diversity of dance and dancers and refer to local problems of climate change.
The additional maps give these works a larger context. The project is long-term and will be expanded regularly.
The aim of this global project is to make climate change tangible and visible, using dance, scientific data and personal testimonies from numerous countries around the world in equal measure.
We hope that in the future other dance artists, companies and institutions will participate in this project and that it will become a common statement of the international dance community.
The maps were developed together with the "mLab" of the Geographical Institute of the University of Bern to further contextualize the video works of the participating artists.

The EDP Team
The project deals with the question of whether the specific body knowledge of dance cultures can be used to achieve a less destructive way of dealing with nature and ecosystems. Our aim is to bring together contemporary dancers from different countries to explore new possibilities for the further development of ecological approaches in dance, based on an examination of traditional dances and rituals. Both Western and non-Western dance cultures have a large repertoire of dances (harvest dances, animal dances, rain rituals) that express human relationships with nature in a variety of forms. In addition, many contemporary dance artists work at the intersection of environmental activism, sustainability and somatic practice and see dance as a catalyst for social change towards greater environmental awareness. Dance can provide performers and viewers with a reflective and conscious connection to the ecosystem, and this is not only true of the long tradition of dancing in the landscape. It is true that in order to stop the further destruction of the environment, it will be necessary to find a change from an anthropocentric world view to a way of dealing with nature that sees all forms of life as equal. In our opinion, dance as one of the most original forms of expression has the potential to accompany this search.
