I am here still by Olarsons, co-created in collaboration with Ludic, is a choreographed intra-active project that questions human-plant hybridisation and actively abandons any anthropomorphic and anthropocentric perspectives. The research stirs around the body as medium of self-metamorphosis; embodying various qualities - anatomical, biological, perceptual - from existing vegetal organisms.

This project initiated and developed during the CNDB eastern European dance residencies, REEDANS, at Fabrica de Pensule - Cluj, under the mentorship of the Ukrainian choreographer Viktor Ruban.

As a result of the CNDB residency programme, “I am here still” was presented in the frame of annual program of artistic residencies in Kyiv Dance Residency. Supported by i-Portunus program, Ruban Production ITP and "Impulse Transformation Platform" CO ICF in collaboration with Довженко-Центр : Dovzhenko Centre.
