Based on Annie Proulx's novel Barkskins

What if mankind’s ‘peaceful’ co-existence with nature turns out to be one of the utopias of the 21st century?

With harrowing images of the Amazon rainforest wildfires and Australia bushfires still fresh in mind, Sofia Marathaki delivers a performance that raises awareness of environmental issues; a performance dedicated to forests, onetime habitat of nymphs and mythological heroes, currently the weakest link in the environmental chain. The dramaturgy is built around Pulitzer Prize-winning Annie Proulx’s novel Barkskins, also famous for her short story Brokeback Mountain. Spanning 300 years, the story exposes the rampant exploitation of the supposedly inexhaustible natural resources over the centuries as seen through the eyes of its main characters, dramatically confronting us with the possibility of ecological collapse. Fiction meets documentary theatre, as the dramaturgy draws on audio-visual footage of interviews with scientists, foresters and biologists, creating a comprehensive narrative about the history of forests.
