        Embrace         Giants in the Forest



Embrace

Synopsis:
Embrace is an ambitious site-specific production fusing aerial artistry, traditional Indian dance, shadow puppetry, film, sound and light installations. It was conceived, designed and directed by Kim Bergsagel. Embrace toured to Scottish woodlands and other outdoor venues in autumn 2014. Vision Mechanics developed Embrace in India with puppeteers and dancers from Darpana Theatre Company, Ahmedabad, Gujarat. Embrace is inspired by Amrita Devi who in 1730 sacrificed her life trying to protect the trees that surrounded her village in Rajasthan, India. In the 1970s her story influenced women in the Himalayas to launch an environmental protest. This movement, known as Chipko was led by rural women trying to save the environment that was crucial to their economic survival ("Chipko" means "Embrace"). Embrace is a celebration of those who have made a difference and the knowledge that each one of us has the power to do so.
