Human Landscapes
The migrations of beings, gestures, and stories

Conception and Collaboration by Germana Civera
In collaboration with Core Dance
Sound Design by Didier Aschour

“Human Landscapes” is an embodied reflexion on history, memory, travel, encounters, the migration of beings, gestures and stories. Choreographer Germana Civera draws on her family’s own years in exile during the Spanish Civil War to create a multi-sensory performance in which the audience moves throughout the venue, following seven dancers on a migrant journey.

In an age marked by global dispersion and displacement, “Human Landscapes” seeks to address the physical and mental forms of alienation that unite all migrant subjects, regardless of era, culture and circumstances. It focuses on the stories and discourses of migration, the imaginary and poetics of migration and the transmission of exile experiences through history, memory, music, landscapes and choreography.

Advisory: Human Landscapes contains prolonged periods of full adult nudity.

Core Dance

Event to Support Core Dance

For four decades, Core Dance has supported innovation, collaboration, artistic risk-taking and sustainable art-making in dance. An award-winning contemporary dance organization with global reach, Core Dance creates, performs, and produces compelling original dance that ignites the creative spirit and actively encourages participation and conversation with the community. In 1980, Core Dance was co-founded in Houston, Texas by dancer and choreographer Sue Schroeder and her sister, Kathy Russell.  Five years later, the organization added Atlanta, Georgia as a second home base, creating a platform for dance that is relevant in both cities and around the globe. Core Dance uses dance to educate, question and illuminate, and is internationally recognized for its artistically driven research practices, cross-cultural and multi-disciplinary collaborations, the humanity of the individual Dance Artists, and its rigorous physicality.
