It is said that the site of the bodhi tree is the last place on earth that would be destroyed when the world comes to an end, and when the world reappears it would be the first site to be created. The Slovenian choreographer Mala Kline and the dancers of BODHI PROJECT explore the potential of the tree as an image, a diagram, as a site where the world dreams itself into being. It unfolds itself moment by moment, from within the body that is itself a tree, from the intervals between bodies that are a tree. bodhi is a tree that dreams, a tree that dreams itself into being through dance.
