Why does the Brazil Nut need the Orchid

Commissioned by Dance Shorts

Award winning choreographer Deborah Light collaborates with Karol Cysewski to create ten minutes of fresh and exciting dance for theatre foyers across Wales.

Why does the “Brazil Nut Need the Orchid” is a humorous take on the wildlife documentary genre. Through movement which ranges from the beautiful to the bizarre it explores the symbiosis of plant and animal species as metaphors for human relationships.

It draws on the TV documentary Secrets of Our Living Planet

10 million species live on planet earth, each one is remarkable but none can survive on its own. All life depends upon connections: unexpected, invariably complex, beautiful relationships between millions of plants and animals.
