Be a Tree Now!
The CND participates in this initiative against Climate Change
The National Dance Company has joined the Be a Tree Now! movement, a mobilizing and open action in which dance is used so that people see and represent themselves as a tree.
The climate emergency is the biggest problem we face as a species. We must act to make visible the need to urgently apply climate justice.
Today, Tuesday, October 24, 2023, International Day against Climate Change, the presentation of this initiative by Eugenio Ampudia took place in the Botanical Garden of the Complutense University.
Artist Eugenio Ampudia presents Be a Tree Now!, transmedia action for climate justice.
The Botanical Garden of the Complutense University of Madrid will be the scene of the public presentation of the new work by Eugenio Ampudia, on Tuesday, October 24, International Day against Climate Change.
The presentation, which will have the collaboration of the National Dance Company, is held in the best possible place. An artistic action in which people represent themselves as trees in a space where 800 plant species live. Showing empathy with other species and warning about the climate emergency is the very essence of action.
Be a Tree Now! It is an open, transversal and participatory work that will end with an audiovisual piece by the artist documenting the action.
