Live Performance 40min. for 5 performers (in creation)
Florine Leoni's work THIS IS HOME researches complex relationships to notions of ‘home’.
Within an experimental setting, five performers explore the feeling of home; rationally by language, physically by dancing. How have socialisations and experiences from our childhood inscribed themselves in our body memory? How can our place of longing be described? Can we only arrive when we are no longer afraid of settling or being rooted? Is the home perhaps an inner place, a state or an emotion?
The work THIS IS HOME turns research on this manifold theme into a work of art and gives space to the ambiguous, contradictory and polyvalent. It raises philosophical questions that encourage us to reflect on our own sense of self and individual relationship to home.
