The Shyness of Trees

The Shyness of Tress considers human relationships and connections through the natural phenomenon of 'crown shyness'. Exhibited in Malaysian camphor trees, they do not touch one another and leave vein-like gaps in the overhead fabric of the canopy. Drawing parallels between forest ecologies and urban cityscapes, this work considers how we experience isolation, attachment and the differing qualities of touch. 

 

Presented in a showing at the Goodman Arts Centre, this initial body of research was conducted as part of choreographer Lucy Marinkovich's residency at Dance Nucleus in Singapore throughout July, 2017.
