The Nature of Us

In their duets “YEW” and “YEW: outside” Angela Schubot and Jared Gra­dinger immersed themselves deeply in nature and its inherent intelligence. For the third part of their cycle they have invited both plant actors as well as five human performers to a post-human group choreography “The Nature of Us.” The heterogeneous ensemble on the stage of HAU2 causes a soilless garden with multiple voices to emerge from sounds and bodies. “The Nature of Us” invites its audience, human and otherwise, into this ecosystem – and searches for a consciousness that neither suppresses nor exaggerates nature, instead making space for a co-creative polyphony. How can we come together to be the garden that we actually are? In the more than 10-year history of their collaboration, “The Nature of Us” is the first ensemble piece by the choreographer duo Schu­bot & Gradinger.
