Ho.Me (dancefilm)

Created: 2019
Length: 7:52
Videographer/ Editor: Gemma Crowe
Choreographer/ Director: Carolina Bergonzoni
Performers/ Collaborators: Harmanie Rose, Peggy Leung and Matthew Chyzyk
Composer: Alex Mah

Ho.Me explores themes of belonging, comfort and discomfort in relation to the notion of inhabiting the body. The piece is comprised of three portraits of individuals who exist in different bodies but are linked by a certain narrative. The three performers move through solo material in the private, intimate space of their homes, and eventually become an ensemble in the formal setting of an art gallery, building a connection that speaks to togetherness. Ho.Me revels in the beauty of difference and the universality of the body; it highlights the relationship between the body and the self and the creative possibilities of the body.
