Chanje Kunda presents PLANT FETISH
Performance artist Chanje Kunda has discovered that plants reduce stress. She’s also learnt that some women in Mexico, fed up with men, are getting married to trees. The trees aren’t very talkative, but they’re tall, do great things for the planet, and are renowned for their wood.
So Chanje, inspired, fell in love with plants, fleshy succulents, venus flytrap, the twining of a creeper. The pressures of life drifted away. This show maps her journey, and features a harem of stunning tropical plants. With music and movement, dramatic narrative, metaphors of growth and renewal, the show ends on a climax…
Plant Fetish will inspire you to embrace foliage over FOMO.
