Nic Green's latest show at Battersea Arts Centre offers "an embodied investigation of heritage, bloodlines and belonging"
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Born to a Scottish father (whom she met only once, aged sixteen), Green follows the mystery of her paternal line, evoking the lands of ancestors through the dance of drum and moustache. Accompanied by an ensemble of drums, she draws on the energies and archetypes of her bloodline: the cathartic, intoxicating dances of the terra firma; the ancient warrior women painted and wild; the sadness of the songs, lost and forgotten and the complex psycho-geography of this land. Fatherland celebrates the complex beauty of relationships and of realising one's place in the world.
