Carolina Bergonzoni | All Bodies Dance
Ho.Me explores themes of belonging, comfort and discomfort in relation to the notion of inhabiting the body. The piece is comprised of three portraits of individuals who exist in different bodies but are linked by a certain narrative. The three performers move through solo material in the private, intimate, space of their homes, and eventually become an ensemble in the formal setting of an art gallery, building a connection that speaks to togetherness. Ho.Me revels in the beauty of difference and the universality of the body; it highlights the relationship between the body and the self and the creative possibilities of the body.
Ho.Me was originally commissioned by F-O-R-M 2019

Thierry Verger/Marek Klajda | Modal Performance
SACRƎ takes you through a very personal attempt to finding a unity that transcends the body of the dancer.
A story of the beginning of a life and it’s end. About the in-between … all the emotions, choices and this inseparable body: (im) perfect, unique, (un) loved, eternal. (Un) limited, material, (un) grateful. (Un) holy.
