Earthling Gaia is a performance which through sound, walking and the inclusion of space aims at the sensibilization of young people and the promotion of outdoor activities. In addition to experiencing and reflecting on the ecology, it prompts the development of mindfulness. From an indoor site, such as a theatre, cinema or gallery, the performance invites us outdoors, in the nature. A forest as a stage, and the audience trading comfortable chairs for walking shoes and heading off to the performance.

Some locations along the way are natural venues – natural auditoriums complete with architecturally superb observations posts, offering magnificent views of the landscape which intoxicates with its beauty and triggers imagination by constantly changing. We can imagine looking into the future, exploring possible scenarios for the days to come.

A dystopian story of Earthling Gaia recounts a possible future of the Lake Cerknica area. We experience the sound performance while walking a selected part of the Drvošec trail. We stop at the observation posts, observe the lake, experience the forest and, above all, listen. Earthling Gaia, a girl as a metaphor and the main character of the performance, will speculate on a potential scenario of the future of our overstrained planet which indisputably dictates the development of the local landscape.
