HOME - by Conny Janssen Danst
In the ’21 / ’22 season, Conny Janssen Danst is going to reprise HOME, a dance performance about people in search of their place in the world and in close proximity to each another. With the corona pandemic at the forefront of our minds, the notion of ‘home’ takes on a new meaning. This might make the performance even more topical than ever.
‘If you deny my roots, you deny me’
HOME asks what ‘home’ is, what a house means. It is more than bricks, more than a physical space. What creates a ‘home’ for you, what makes you feel at home? Where do you belong?
“As is so often the case in my work, HOME is about the human being in connection with the other, how we relate to that other. I think we are who we are because of, with, in spite of and thanks to that other. In a personal as well as a social point of view.” - Conny Janssen
Together with a large, adventurous group of dancers - young talent and familiar faces – Conny Janssen works with live music specially composed for HOME by soundscape artist Michel Banabila en cellist Maarten Vos.
19.00 Welcome + introductory speech

DE VOLKSKRANT *****
‘...an intensely comforting experience in confusing times.’
‘...fascinating because of the subtleness with which she manages to let all individuals shine simultaneously within the entirety. […] In HOME, attention to detail is remarkable; it enriches the language of movement. That clarity is a major force.’
NRC HANDELSBLAD ***
‘All her choreographies radiate compassion for the vulnerable human being trying to find anchors in life’s chaos, a place that enables him to be himself and to be save, together with others.’
