Just like the Mythological bird that obtain new life by arising from the ashes, the setting of the Birth of the Phoenix is dismantled at the end of each show only to be reborn in another place and time. This eco-dance production is a dynamic site-specific creation adapting to the qualities of each performance-site where audience and performers are able to immediately experience time and space of the surrounding environment.
