In 2010, Terri began clearing brush in a small forest on Île Audet, a small island on a lake in the Appalachian hills of Quebec. As a way to deal with the deadfall and accelerate decay, she started making nest-like structures in the woods, invitations for wildlife both real and mythical. In 2013, a number of artists to come and interact with these structures, recording and collecting these activities. In 2016, Terri asked choreographers Lina Cruz, Hannah Fischer and Adam Kinner to help create three movements, weaving together what had been collected, bringing the forest onto the stage. While there is no narrative, their roots on the island highlight a range of physical and emotional connections to the environment.
