For his Artist’s Garden commission, Bo choreographed a dance with two human dancers and a Samur tree growing in the Mleiha desert in Sharjah as a way to understand and reconnect with the land and the tree. The performance is presented here as a film installation, presented at the Jameel, set within a landscape of indigenous plants that thrive in the desert
