 The arboreal project

The Arboreal Projects is an umbrella project at the intersection of live performance and audio-visual installation initiated by the multidisciplinary duo Weintal & Psallidakos.

A commited journey that delves deep into the profound connection between humanity and the natural world. Our motivation stems from the instructive book "The Secret Life of Trees - How They Live and Why They Matter" by Colin Tudge, driving us to explore this intricate interconnectedness. Together, we challenge ourselves to foster ecological awareness and regeneration of human sensitivity, encompassing movement, video, sound, imagery, and poetry. At our project's core is the exploration of the 'body' in relation to time and history: the human body carries its unique history, just as a tree's body encapsulates its own narrative and profound form of "knowledge. We focus on observing movement to unravel the intricate dance of time.

The grove of synergy - Aegina

Our artistic journey in this realm begins with The Grove of Synergy (2023), a project that unfolds in Aegina, Greece at the Ancient Olive Grove. Over the course of three weeks, we closely collaborate with scientists and scholars to delve into the intricate connections between trees and humanity, investigating the "synergetic effect" between the tree's body and that of humans. During this time, we use movement, sound, and image to create a multidisciplinary event | exhibition. This collaborative effort extends to include local experts in ecology, botany, and music, enriching our exploration.

The Grove of Synergy is supported by the European Union and Culture Moves Europe. It's important to note that this work was produced with the financial assistance of the European Union.

because The trees know - Amsterdam

Because The Trees Know (2024) - is an Amsterdam based dance project in which I will delve into an in-depth corporeal investigation exploring the interconnection between tree frequencies and the human body. The project aims to unravel the subtle resonance existing between these distinct frequencies. Drawing inspiration from trees as silent witnesses of time, the research seeks to understand the embodied experience of these frequencies, probing how they impact human well-being. In my corporeal exploration, I aim to go beyond the surface, delving into the bioelectrical impulses generated by the human body and the nuanced vibrations emitted by trees. This tactile investigation involves the embodyment of these frequencies, translating them into movement and sensory experiences. Through this corporeal lens, I strive to illuminate the profound connection between the human body and the natural world, emphasizing the potential  comprehensive implications of aligning with the frequencies of trees. This embodied project serves as a bridge, connecting scientific understanding with the lived experience, fostering a deeper appreciation for the intricate dance between humans and trees.
