How do you readapt to new circumstances?
Rhodiola, also known as arctic root or golden root, is an herb that grows in the cold, mountainous regions of Europe and Asia. Its roots are considered adaptogens, meaning they help your body adapt to stress when consumed. Its root contains more than 140 active ingredients, with the two most potent being rosavin and salidroside.
This solo is an investigation of the means of adaptability, play, recovery and the research I’ve been doing in the last 2 years of the power of movement of plants, their intelligence and transpeciesm.
