Laboratory-performance of movement and music with the choreographer and dancer Marina Nabais and the musician Rémi Gallet, with the participation of elements of the community.

RETURNING HOME has several layers – in a post-pandemic era – which means returning to yourself, to your routines, in a body/consciousness that has been confined, isolated, in a state of permanent stress, without physical contact, with movements restricted and with the fear of illness and death; returning home when we are faced with the need or urgency of having to leave the place we inhabit; returning home in a culture/society that is increasingly focused on technology and disconnected from itself, from nature and from the collective; returning home taking into account the permanent transformations and revolutions of the body: in adolescence we are faced with the speed and strangeness of the transformation of our body, in aging we are faced with the need to deal also with the strangeness of the transformation of our body, as well as all the limitations to which we begin to be subject. In all of them, the place of the body as home will be the main engine that will serve as the motto for this research.
