Chanje Kunda presents Plant Fetish
One woman's quest to find a herbal remedy for heartache
Performance artist Chanje Kunda was suffering with stress and anxiety when she first discovered that plants soothe the soul. She then learnt that some women in Mexico, fed up with men, were getting married to trees. Trees aren’t very talkative, but they are tall, do great things for the planet, and are renowned for their wood.
Chanje was inspired and surrendered to this notion. She fell in love with plants: fleshy succulents, monstera’s handshape leaves, the Venus flytrap, the twining of a creeper. The pressures of life drifted away.
We are forever comparing our lives to those of others on social media and the superficial numbers game that is dating via online apps. Plant Fetish inspires you to embrace foliage over FOMO!
This show maps Chanje’s journey, through music and movement, dramatic narrative and metaphors of growth and renewal, plus there is a harem of stunning tropical plants that dress the stage. The show ends on a climax…
