Flora Fauna Project is a multi-disciplinary dance company run by Swedish choreographer Maria Nilsson Waller and Irish inter-disciplinary artist Stace Gill. We make work for stage, film and installation. We release music as The Sei.
Flora Fauna Project also includes a far reaching series of curated talks, workshops and community collaborations that focuses on relationship to nature and environment, natural intelligence, evolution and metamorphoses, representation/giving voice to diversity, gender and sexuality, community and social dreaming. These are big topics, and we are trying to have the conversation with many different people, in many different ways, both on and off stage.
In 2022 we began to establish a creative silk road connecting our homelands Sweden and Ireland via land and sea, in search of a more ecological and sustainable way of touring and working. Our touring productions are designed to suit a wide range of venues, making it possible for us to reach rural communities and smaller, alternative venues as well as the traditonal venues. We aim to travel with 100% renewal energy by 2025.
Flora Fauna Project has been supported by the Irish Arts Council, Dance Ireland, the Swedish Arts Council, Konstnärsnämnden, Region Jämtland Härjedalen, Dublin City Council and Estrad Norr. We are dance artists in residence at D-Light Studios, Dublin.
