FORGETTING TREE is a cultural memory project conducted by Jes DeVille, co-produced by Queer Cat Productions and Openhaus Athletics. 

Taking the shape of an immersive dance-theater experience, FORGETTING TREE invites audiences on an enchanted night walk through a curated sensory garden installation. Projections, installations, and an original soundscape will transform the landscape of the Z Space lobby in San Francisco on November 3-5, 2023. Visitors will journey through our garden’s bioluminescence to unearth the story of the Tree of Forgetfulness, reversing an age-old ritual separating humanity from our memory of location and culture through exploitation of land, labor, and living systems. This experience explores universal themes of climate shift, liberation ecology, and traditional ecological knowledge through the lens of communities on the fringe.
