To know nature is to be with it–to spend time listening to the trees, feeling the soil and recognizing each kin and their relations with each other as friends. To spend time in nature is to also ask consent, to ask and wait for a response. Can I ask you for advice? Can I hear your vibration? Can I plop in your ripples? Can we share colors? To get to know each other, there must be a physicality to the relationship.

In the Barro is an evening of performances that explore relationships with Lenapehoking/New York soil with work from artists: Eva Mayhabal Davis, Valentina Bache & Sharon Moreno, Assembly fellows and Marcela Torres.
