Interactive impromptu choir performance.
Woods Can Scream is a cycle of site-specific performances expressly conceived for forests, woods, mountains or vegetal environments, to give voice to the unheard elements we live with, like trees, stones, soil, dew, bugs.
Fascinated by the scientific studies about vegetal intelligence, I created a performance starting with my favorite childhood game: listen to the trees and speak to them.
Then I started to involve some of my artistic partners and finally an entire audience/choir of non-singers. The result was stunning: environmental elements really became respectfully louder through the voices of humans.
My purpose is not to humanize the plants or to put them in an “understandable box”. I wish to reconnect the humans with the ancestors of life on earth, to be in touch with them, to respect and protect them, and to learn from them.

“Trees are sanctuaries. Whoever knows how to speak to them, whoever knows how to listen to them, can learn the truth.”
― Herman Hesse

The voice recordings are the original ones taken during some of the interactive performances (the audience was around 60 people).
It is recommended to use headphones for a more immersive listening.
