Aerowaves Platform: "Home" by Marrafa vzw at World Theater in Sofia

AEROWAVES, supported by Creative Europe Program of EU, represented for Bulgaria by Derida Dance Center and World Theatre in Sofia present:

HOME - dance performance by  MARRAFA vzw – Brussels, Belgium

June 14th 2016, 19:00 h at Sfumato Theatre

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. After “Abstand” which was shown at World Theatre in Sofia 2015, the Bulgarian audience has another chance to experience a new captivating dance piece by contemporary choreographer Luis Marrafa.
