This performance is inspired by a period in my life in with I traveled and meditated a lot about concept of “home”, always looking for a place to feel good. And it was also created at the end of a period during which I worked in a foreign children shelter community. Perhaps in spite of themselves but also luckly for them, they  found a home in this sturcture. They probably escaped from the war, or difficult situation in their home country, looking for a better life, somewhere,far from their roots, crossing lands, seas, adversity. All of us, when we are born, we would be accepted, wellcom in this world. We live with this desire of protection, security, shelter, refuge, but at the same time we are drived by curiosity, by research, by a desire for exploration and discovery. A struggling into this two desires, two directions. This piece is created for Butoh Festival in Pontedera organized by Spazio Nu an amazing place of beautiful meetings.
