Award winning Pasifika choreographer, Tupua Tigafua with a public, visceral and poetic performance about love and loss of our connection with nature and the role of trees and forest ecology in mitigating climate change. (This could include an online element if necessary). Tupua has teamed up with acclaimed musician, composer and music producer David Long who is also part of What if Climate Change was Purple Project?. The artists will collaborate with a range of scientists, providing an evidence base for the new work. Six dancers and potentially up to three live musicians feature in the work together with the score by David. A scientist involved in the project is also part of the performance. Dancer, choreographer and producer Tupe Lualua is managing this project.
