Natures was conceived as a reaction to the growing alienation in the mobility of individuals in their daily lives, sedentarization and the extreme rationalization of ways of life. Choreographer-performer Sofian Jouini uses this project to explore the capacities of the modern human body not only his but those of the viewing public.

With this in mind the audience does not sit in seats but on the very stage. What seats there are consist of small furniture (low stools, meditation benches and yoga balls), and the enactment space is delineated not on the floor but on the ceiling above by a large circular hanging dome.
