A Reforested Body is a body laboratory with an emphasis on contemporary dance creation and composition, with the participation of 15 young inhabitants of the territory between the ages of 14 and 18. Several of the participants identify themselves as belonging to the Cubeo, Yurutí, Makuna or Mestiza ethnic groups. This process addresses the issue of deforestation in the Vaupesian territory from two approaches, on the one hand, is the deforestation of the jungle, the bush, in which fauna, flora, water sources and inhabitants of the territory are affected by the massive and unceasing destruction of the natural environment; On the other hand, there is cultural deforestation in which those fundamental elements that constitute us as integral human beings in the contemporary world are underestimated and destroyed, such as emotions, roots, the construction of identity itself, the traditional practices of culture, freedom, autonomy in education, among many others.

The laboratory will simultaneously address the different technical elements of contemporary dance necessary and relevant to this process, especially composition techniques for dance creation, and the technical and theoretical elements necessary for environmental, cultural and physical reforestation. With these elements, the aim is to create and socialise a great stage action with the participation of 300 young people from the municipality, led by the 15 participants of the laboratory.
