Dendromacy

Dendromacy is a neologism meaning in intimacy with tree.

How to regain empathy towards the non-human?
It was following the meeting with Karen Houle, philosopher of ethics at the University of Guelph in Canada, then Claire Damesin, ecophysiologist at the University of Orsay, that the desire to create plays in collaboration and around this theme was born.

In 2014, I discovered Claire Damesin’s practice combining field experiments and laboratory analyses. I also met Ludwig Jardillier, a specialist in plant ecology in Orsay and Matthias Rillig, director of the Rillig Lab at the Freie Universität in Berlin.
Together we try to redefine our relationship with the tree in a sensitive approach through pieces on our invisible exchanges with the plant.
