One of the inspirational sources is the book by German forest engineer Peter Wohlleben, “The Hidden Life of the Trees” together with other sources and researches. The performance will use the facts about the importance of the trees together with a poetry and magical world of trees, interwoven with memory, communication and breathing that releases oxygen – so necessary for the human survival. 

While Global deforestation continues at an alarming rate, planting the trees shows as one of the most effective way of combating climate changes.  Trees not only provide us with oxygen and shadow, they are also important for our spiritual and physical health. In which ways awareness of that importance can be raised? Our performance is also one of the ways one can choose. Our project aims to sensitize the audience and encourage urban initiatives in defence against excessive tree felling . By using creative ways, the show wants to inspire resistance and to motivate citizens to connect and network, be proactive in the defence of trees and forests.
