Becoming Plant follows six dancers who participate in a therapeutic group experiment with a psychedelic drug known as ‘The Golden Teacher’, while temporarily 'living' together on the demilitarised industrial site. While they are subjected to the plant's consciousness and to each other's presence, they perform a choreography, aligning their naked bodies with each other and with the architectural ruins, with a soundtrack by artist Gaika. The film serves as a catalyst to discuss wider social and relational issues such as science, spirituality, psychiatry, healing, healthcare and the problems of collective depression and trauma resulting from living in the age of Late Capitalism.
+ Introduction by Sim Panaser, Visual Arts Curator.
