An artivist act conceived by Foofwa d’Imobilité, danced by and co-created with Alizée Sourbé and Alex Landa Aguirreche, in conjunction with the launch of the Climat Urbain initiative. Each dancer alternates between pulling a 7 meter long train made of nature, earth, vegetables, fruits, moss, & flowers in interaction with people; some may help themselves to fruits & vegetables at the bottom of the train. This creation, made of recycled materials, is realized in collaboration with Les pieds verts, Pascual Perracini, horticulturist and permaculturist by trade for 50 years & Monica huber as well as volunteers interested in the project.
