About the Piece
Fascinated by the migrations of birds, we want to learn to fly. Lowland returns us to the animality of the body and movement, to learning, effort, tenacity and endurance, to beauty, the spirit of self-improvement and the spirit of freedom. To leave or to put down roots? Lowland is each individual’s landscape and journey. We can only fly with our bodies and we will need inventiveness and imagination in order to get a pair of wings. An imaginary world of birds and men, full of light and vitality in the low ground.
