When R U Coming Back Home | a dance film
Length 10 min
During the last 2 years, our “physical” home became the center of our life; We worked in it, hid inside, secluded, argued, screamed, and laughed.
Sometimes we forget that we can, for a moment, return to “us”, to our own private home, to our bodies.
We moved away from it, returned, remembered that it included everything inside, and wherever we went,
it went with us, the soundbox of emotions, feelings, and memories.
In a fascinating cooperation with 4 dancers, in 4 different countries, each one located in his private home,
we tried to understand the connection between the house we live in, the 4 walls, and the hall that is our body.
We asked questions, toured with our camera, and visited each other’s home, trying to learn and get to know one another through the various rooms, habits, and yearnings. Tried to understand what everyone is longing for while being in his own home
