“Home” is selected as Aerowaves Twenty’16 company.
How to become ‘home’? The idea can be paradoxical – home is solid in our memories, but its colours fade and we forget details over time. Our bodies adapt to new places, new rules – we thrive on curiosity. “Home” takes all these ideas and draws on the deep-rooted experiences of five dancers, creating a detailed, agile and rhythmic dance vocabulary driven by a pulsating, urgent soundscape composed by the choreographer. After “Abstand” which was shown at World Theatre in Sofia 2015, the Bulgarian audience has another chance to experience a new captivating dance piece by contemporary choreographer Luis Marrafa.
Born in Germany, Luis Marrafa lived and studied in Evora, Portugal. He took his dance degree at the Escola Superior de Dança in Lisbon. After that he moved to Brussels where in 2012 he co-founded the dance company MARRAFA vzw and the dance studio StairCase.studio. He creates his own works as a choreographer, dancer and filmmaker inspired from his surroundings, experiences and different cultures. His works have been distinguished at various video and dance forums.
