Create & Sustain: Nic Green

TALK - "How To Love The Raindrops On Your Washing Line: Towards an Ecological Performance Making Practice".

Nic will discuss examples of her work which through practice, address or develop what could be described as ‘ecological consciousness’.

As a practitioner Nic works across forms, placing the practice of listening at the heart of her work. Her research focuses on the development of a reciprocal, relational approach when working with people, place, context or material. She remains committed to developing creative work which can be named as ecological in it’s nature, in the sense that her practice focuses on the study of relationships; the meaning and nature of which emerge through immersive, time and place-based processes. The political aim of this work is to (re) understand and (re) present the narrative of the individual as a part of a mutually dependent ecological paradigm, or gestalt ontology.

In 2010 Nic completed an MSc in Human Ecology for which she conducted an original study on the development and understanding of ecological performance practices. She has also completed the Natural Change Facilitators Course, and extensive study in Vedanta and Yogic Philosophy. Her work has been commissioned and presented both nationally and internationally to critical acclaim and she is best known for her award-winning Trilogy (*****) which received an estimated 1000 participants, receiving the Arches Award for Theatre Directors, a Dublin Fringe Festival Award and a Herald Angel.
