Three performers undergo the Treatment of Remembering together with the audience in a time when nature, consumed by humanity, no longer exists. In poetic dance paintings, they fall into a state of remembering nature in emptied space-time. Through the artificial imitation of the world, which has pushed out the real world, they point to the ever-increasing replacement of the natural environment with the artificial products of human activity. By awakening memories of long-forgotten experiences, the Treatment of Remembering procedure draws attention to the uniqueness of physical and emotional experiences connected with nature. The sensitivity of sound design and original music, together with extreme light atmospheres, enhance the intensity of sensory perception and thus complement a work filled with a constant vibration of origin and extinction. But strong concerns emerge from the artificially created atmospheres of calm, encouraging the viewer to reflect on their relationship with the environment.
