The Tree is a poetic reflection on humanity and nature, on the edge of sinking… _After “Eau”, “Pneuma” and “Now”, it completes the cycle of pieces inspired by French philosopher Gaston Bachelard. Based on “Fragments of a Poetics of Fire”, Carolyn Carlson chose the poetic and symbolic power of flames and more widely the complexity of the natural elements as inspirations for her new creation. The visual artist Gao Xingjian, who was also given the Nobel Prize for literature in 2000, will sublimate the scenography with his abstract paintings in Chinese ink projected on stage.
