Breath II


A transdisciplinary multi-media performance 

Breath II premiered at Institut Pasteur in Paris on August 29, 2022. 

In addition to the themes explored in Breath I, the sequel explores the evolutionary origins of breath and compares ancient civilizations’ understanding of breathing to scientific knowledge of breathing. Biological, ecological, philosophical, social, and behavioral aspects are woven into a story that shows through the lens of breath where we came from, where we are now, and where we could go.
