Bear My Soul

© Small Creative

Bear My Soul is inspired by the animism of indigenous people in the Great North, their myths, and their shamanic practice of dreaming, connecting them to the spirits of plants, animals, and elements that coexist in our world. This immersive experience transports the participants to a spiritual dimension, where each of them embodies a creature with plant and animal characteristics. By using their gaze, touch, and the resonance of their voice, participants establish a connection with other beings.
