A razed forest, a cluster of blooming mushrooms, and two people journeying towards the horizon.
One foot in front of the other.

Turning back the clock to the end of history, Emergency Chorus weave together the story of mushroom foragers in Oregon and apocalypse narratives into a haunting tapestry of life in the wilderness.
Moving through choreography, text and music, Landscape (1989) is a meditation on forgotten histories and lost futures, endings and beginnings. A whispered call to attention for an age of climate emergency, asking how we find hope amongst ruins.
