With Her In Ourland
Cultural Ecofeminism has been developed in response to the belief that women and nature have become dominated and devalued in Western culture. Followers of this belief idealise a time when nature was encapsulated within the feminine. With Her in Ourland visualises Cultural Ecofeminism within the context of the British anti-fracking movement. The work seeks to intervene in the creation of new social patterns, relating to environmental issues through the use of choreography. The portrayal of women lead utopias as fictional emancipation for nature and the feminine in Melanie Wilson's Opera for the Unknown Woman and Charlotte Perkins Gilman's Herland, is used to unpick the viability of art as a tool of activism and its role within interpretations of climate issues.
