We are the land we live on is an improvised participatory performance exploring the relationships between visual perception, nomadism and settlement. Inviting the audience to make choices, to travel in space or to stay still, to observe from different points of view and to deepen their perspective on seeing and being seen, We are the land we live onexplores different ways to engage in the consequences of our actions. “To see is not only to register something, but to learn about it.”
” I like the perspective of how YOU watch the audience. We watch you, we watch you watch the others, we watch the others watch you, we watch the others begin to “perform”… It’s great cause there are so many things to observe. ” – Sylvie Bouchard, Resident Outside Eye at Series 8 :08, Canadian Dance in the Making, Toronto, January 2010.
