Human Landscape Dance examines the relationship of body with environment. Dance does
not take place in a vacuum. The context within which we perform says as much as the
movements. By plying the counter tension between person and space, this group
reveals humanity's interdependence with our world.

Human Landscape Dance has distinguished itself by juxtaposing urban and natural
iconography. The group's work tests the boundaries with which we surround ourselves.
In "Leaving Home," 2007, they stage a metaphoric birth in a city park. The dance
asks, which natural processes do we yet allow ourselves-or are we forced-to
experience? Is there anything beyond sex, giving birth, and death from which we are
blocking ourselves?

These dances do not advocate a return to the wild. Rather, they argue that we are
still part of nature, despite arbitrary distinctions imposed by language and air
conditioning. "Salmon Run," 2004, points out how even our contrivances mimic nature.
The dancers travel up the tiers of a fountain against the downward current of the
stream. We are yet as immersed in nature as fish in water.

Human Landscape Dance uncovers layers of meaning between person and place. Their
dances demonstrate the influence environment applies to statement. The group treats
the interconnectedness of man and nature through modern dance in public spaces."

Malcolm Shute, Artistic Director
