Synopsis: Re-encounter traces the London myth—the Hardy Tree and people’s companionship throughout their lives, creating an immersive poetic space. By watching the stories of the Hardy Tree from birth, growth, dying and rebirth (meeting people again with new life), the audience could re-awaken the emotional connection with trees (nature). It aims to invite the audience to think: In the context of ecological destruction today, how can we find our original spiritual connection with trees (nature) and return to the touching feeling of the initial encounter?
