Flora Fauna Project

FLORA FAUNA PROJECT


Stage performances | Live music | Workshops | Talks | Installation


We cannot save the planet until we love it, until we truly love.  


Maria Nilsson Waller joined forces with multidisciplinary artist Stace Gill, founder of electronica group THE SEI in 2017.


Under the umbrella of production house "Flora Fauna Project" they have since created a series of performances, talks, intallations, films and workshops exploring our relation to nature and environment, natural intelligence, evolution, metamorphoses, gender and sexuality, community and social dreaming. 


The stagepiece Flora + Fauna was the original creation, the genesis of many more projetcs to come.

To truly love we need to learn to access our own bodies and emotions, to empathise with each other as well as with our greater environment. This project is a response and solution to some of the most urgent and deep needs in todays society. Through performances, workshops and audience conversations, performers and audiences will be challenged and empowered to greater agency as human beings. The project reminds and inspires both performers and audiences to look within, honestly and bravely in order to retrieve their most authentic selves, and with that a truer and more planet conscious sense of discernment.
