WOODS team

Description Details

WOODS shouts from the canopy. We are the change.

Join Clarice Lima and the WOODS team alongside a large troupe of incredible Bristolians as they take our relationship with the climate and literally turn things upside down. A temporary forest with a cast of extraordinary Bristolians is created in the heart of Bristol’s urban landscape. Legs will rise, skirts will fall, hearts will beat faster. 

WOODS blurs the lines between live performance, visual arts and fashion design, creating a biodiverse landscape amidst the city’s concrete and glass. Here the strength and instability of the body reflect a forest’s power and fragility. 

This project has been generously supported by Perform Europe. There is still time to be part of this unique opportunity and become a tree-performer alongside the WOODS team. Find out more.
