"This Herbarium is a different kind of collection, one that instead of pressed plant matter maintains movement and forms that take place between two catastrophes, between two natural or other disasters. Herbarium emerged from a curiosity about ecology as “the science of planetary housekeeping” and from the idea of excess in dance as waste material, whereby this surplus becomes understood as a source of information and an archive of the processes recycled through dance...

Herbarium is interested in the interdependence of different forms of life and environment, it imagines a snail as it falls asleep and dreams of being a mushroom."
