From August 15 to 27, 2022, Circuit-Est centre chorégraphique and Bora Bora Residency Centre is offering to the dancers Ida Frømyr Borgen (NO) and Amanda Bach (DK), accompanied by Eirik Havnes (NO), a unique opportunity to benefit from a research and creative residency in our studios to work on their project, Plantropologi.


Ida Frømyr Borgen and Amanda Bach explore parallels that exist between human and plant behaviour. Does rosehip bushes have social behaviour and what can root networks tell us about political structures? For the residency at Circuit-Est centre chorégraphique, Ida Frømyr Borgen and Amanda Bach have teamed up with composer Eirik Havnes.
