The question that nourishes and ignites this work? How to cultivate and perform a groundless ground (a ground beyond territoriality), in which to to play, risk, dance and co-exist together? Through the challenges and lessons of coming and going, departing, escaping and arriving, we gather and reinvent landscapes and corporealities of celebration – that support the uprooted state that frequently accompanies the migratory experiences.
In our contemporary times with increases in migration and movement around the territorialized lands we inhabit, our artistic work is motivated by a feeling of restlessness in the face of the global injustices and prejudices that affect, mark and destabilize the migratory body in a daily basis, the intolerances impregnated and promoted in society as we know it.
The mobile artistic team is composed of a group of individuals who have experienced migration as an inherent reality and necessity of their lives and stories, for very different reasons including: being able to exercise the right to dance, as an act of political dissent, out of love, to study, in search of hope, for pleasure, for the desire to re-root. A universe emerges on stage that takes us beyond a known sense of place, a sense of reinvented belonging, a common rhythm in reverberation, a carnivalesque hope. The bodies of the performers remain in transit, navigating and overcoming the collective shipwreck, celebrating new lands beyond laws, in the subsoil of our imaginary.
