How to become ‘home’? The idea can be paradoxical - home is solid in our memories, but its colours fade and we forget details over time. Our bodies adapt to new places, new rules - we thrive on curiosity. HOME takes all these ideas and draws on the deep-rooted experiences of five dancers, creating a detailed, agile and rhythmic dance vocabulary driven by a pulsating, urgent soundscape composed by the choreographer.
