Amphibious Trilogies

Enacting and dancing on amphibiousness

Science couldn’t explain it, but there it was, in the deep deep waters of the Amazon, a throwback to a creature that had existed a hundred billion year ago.

Part 1: Creature from The Black Lagoon
Part 2: The dance of evolution

This two-part workshop emerges from the of Amphibious Trilogies project and lands somewhere between design fictioning, choreography and dance. Together, we enact a short sequence from the movie “Creature from The Black Lagoon” (1954) and learn to do ‘’The dance of evolution’’, from the big bang to crawling out of the sea and onto dry land.
