Using the multiple languages available in a choreographic piece, Triste in English from Spanish links together women’s experiences, the way in which we generate social systems and the environment. An ecological perspective enables us to take this reflection further and to enter into possible new relationships – between one another and with the environment. Yayo Herrero, a researcher in the field of social ecology, talks about ecofeminism and such issues as looking after the land and human life, environmentally aware consumption, social inclusion, and economic and social models that are compatible with the regenerative movement of nature.
