Friches Théâtre Urbain’s Hope is a Wooded Time is an ongoing community-based eco-art project outside Paris that draws inspiration from its site’s evocative heritage as part of les Murs à Pêches, ‘living walls’ for espaliered fruit trees in the seventeenth to nineteenth centuries, and its contemporary reality as a wooded wasteland. The project encourages ethical encounters between ecological processes of biodiversity and human interventions by its neighbours, ethnically and culturally diverse populations of Sinti and Romany gypsies, Russian and North African immigrants and native French.
