Through this piece the choreographer deals with personal questions of home,belonging, non-belonging and forms of exile. To give the word to the embodied body, that had passed through such tunnel of experience. In his own rationality, there is no exile without a prior movement or emigration, he who says exile, says home in reverse, but the concept of exile is not about relocation or departure, the only thing that is real is the tragedy that such loss of home constantly brings to one’s existence.
