Forests is a research and an action on the edges of citizenship, comprised of different episodes: a performance series, a film, some temporary schools for future forests experts.
Space of this research is the forest: sum of fragile environments, juridical and narrative constructions and reservoir of political relationships that span from human to otherness.

Within the forest happens a defamiliarization process: forests disclose that magical-linguistic principle which submits all of us to notions like institution, nature, citizenship, human.
"The forest is not only a conceptual space which forces us for a redefinition of our notion of citizenship, but it is -at the same time- our constant story telling about this space."
"My word for forest is not a place, but a muddle of relationships that can happen everywhere, as long as all these relationships create livability and new forms of citizenships."
