"This is my leg. I am here."
H:O:M:E is a durational performance-based installation exploring the ways in which locations, memories, stories, and histories are connected through personal and collective narratives. Inside a large gallery space, the performers weave an experiential landscape of storytelling, sound, art-making and performance.
The audience are invited to enter the landscape of the work and engage with the space, arriving and leaving when they please, or coming as going as many times as they would like over the four hours of the performance.
The work has been shaped by, and developed in, collaboration with the community of Melbourne. Memories of landscapes of personal significance being delivered through an online portal will appear in the space to weave a collective landscape of recollection and meaning.
Acknowledging the transient and disrupted connections to homelands and heritage that are a feature of contemporary Australian discourse, H:O:M:E constructs a shifting framework to explore the relationship between geography and identity. Poetics, recollections, relational choreography, live art interactions are all drawn into the work to disrupt, dislodge and unpack the conflicted and paradoxical relationship between identity, place and belonging.
Working in collaboration, H:O:M:E is enlivened by the aural narratives of sound artist, Amy Hanley.
