Impatiens walleriana

Impatiens walleriana is a duett with a gardener and Doris Uhlich. The „Nachwuchskünstlerinnen“ (this is the german expression for an upcoming/growing artists) Doris Uhlich and Andrea Salzmann are researching about the word „Nachwuchs“.
Doris Uhlich dances parts of the first choreography which she learnt when she was 13: Flashdance.
I create an audition-situation with the gardener. He is watching my dance and then giving me feed-back: botanic feed-back. He is speaking about young plants, their growing, conditions for growing, etc.
