Land Mass: North Park is a site-specific walking dance performance highlighting the land and environment with movement, sound and sculpture. Land Mass is a meditative exploration of the land, body and our relationships and connection to nature.
Kristina Isabelle and company have explored the concept of the elements: air, fire, water, earth in the body for over 4 years. In 2016 we presented And The Spirit Moved Me, an evening length multi-media and multi-level dance work for the theater. Now we are taking the work outdoors to discover the next level of natures influence on a moving body by incorporating the healing properties of a walk in the woods to alter perspectives and engage with nature and movement in new ways.
