A theatrical stage to be experienced by one person at a time. The forms of  the pods and twines are inspired by the questions:  What would it be  like to be inside, or underneath, a tree’s roots ...  to feel the world from a tree’s perspective ??

 

Inscribed on the walls are a number of proverbs, quotations, and  lines of poetry, about trees; collected from cultures around the world.
