Planetary Acupuncture

“Human body is a miniature of nature, made out of five elements: earth, water, fire, air and ether. These elements are always living within us, to regenerate and nourish us in order to maintain life.” -Oriental Medicine

Ritual performance ‘Planetary Acupuncture’ reflects on the individual human body as an energy centre to connect and communicate its own specific role on the earth.

In the performance, trees symbolise earth energy. Dancer embodies a moving spirit. The audience is invited to witness an open landscape where the body, tree and the space merging as one energy.
