Home Movie (working title) addresses our emotional relationship to the concept of “home” as a place of warmth, comfort and love. Home as a metaphor for identity, homely coziness, conflicts and routines. A place we are welcomed and where we can be ourselves. A place where we feel safe, where the dishes can pile up. A utopian, emotional place we remember with nostalgia.
The five dancers on stage rediscover daily rituals and private memories by creating a kind of bodily map that is constantly changing before our eyes: the feeling of everyday experiences through a life course. The audience is invited to explore the stage room, which is designed as several rooms in the room. They can go in and out, and constantly find new paths and locations that create closeness and ever-changing points of view to the show.
Wee was established by Francesco Scavetta and Gry Kipperberg in Oslo (Norway) in 1999 and have, since the beginning, marked itself for its original style and an extensive international activity. Wee has produced 20 performances -and several commissioned and shorter works – and toured in 36 countries in Europe, Middle East, Asia, North and South America.
The projects have been produced with the support of Norwegian Culture Council and other public bodies, in cooperation with national and international organizations. In Norway, the company works closely with Dansens Hus in Oslo, which figure as a co-producer in six of the company’s productions. Wee’s work has received numerous awards, most recently in Croatia, in 2014: Best Dance Performance for the Surprised Body Project – Zagreb.
