Voice of Nature: THE TRIAL
FoAM in Brussels works with Maria Lucia Cruz Correia to co-create "The voice of nature" (Première February 2019).
The voice of nature is a site-specific court piece, in which we investigate ecocide and the possibilities of creating a new proposal for the justice- system as an answer to the current vacuum in the environmental crime system. We are experimenting with the interconnectedness of a conventional court, restorative justice and transformative processes as a away to unveil the hidden stories of traumatic environments and its correlation to colonialism and power. In our SF trial, we propose a new type of “veridict ”, in which human and non-humans will come to a new collective language focused on interbeing, intersectionality and restoration.
