BE MY HOME
"Beautiful, meditative... Be My Home felt like a glimpse into some private room, and we were well-rewarded for our curiosity." Review by Ka Bradley, Resolution 2016.
"Be My Home takes 20 minutes to perform and in its simplicity gains a timeless quality that extends beyond the prescribed limit for the performance" Review by Nicholas Minns, Resolution 2016.
'A home attached to a body
A body inside a home
The echoes of a past home
The dream of a future home,
A journey in search of a lost home
A home for what I am, what I have been and what I will be..
My lifelong home..'
Be My Home is an intimate solo performance inspired by poetic images and metaphors of the houses we live in. Exploring the notion and meaning of home it reflects on the primary human need to inhabit places and seek other kind of shelters.
