Earthlings by Emmie Shaw-Peake

A performance installation that interweaves the habituality of the everyday with the natural world. Through a series of soundscapes, sculpture and somatic movement the artist, Emmie Shaw-Peake, generates a mystical lens for the audience to view and engage with the work in order to promote a sense of reconnection with the Earth. To become re-enchanted once more.
