THE HOUSE THAT NEVER WALKED / HOMESCAPES

Helge Letonja

HOME. – An internal and external place, an influence, a memory, a sense of belonging, a temporary state, a longing, or a concept? With their own perspectives and focuses, Helge Letonja and Opiyo Okach choreograph their pieces dedicated to the theme of “home” with  nine dancers from West Africa and Europe.

In his choreography HOMESCAPES, Letonja questions the body as our physical home, as a lively homeland, as a memory storage. In his part of the double-feature evening HOME 52°30’N13°23’E ELEV 37 m , Okach, in THE HOUSE THAT NEVER WALKED, explores “home” as a collective, changeable, common space, as an expanded social architecture in interaction with its environment.
