HOME

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.

Interpretation & Music by Luis Marrafa

Marvel

Through the invitation from the dance company, Companhia de Dança de Almada, in Portugal. Luis Marrafa created Marvel. for the 25th anniversary of their dance platform “Quinzena de Dança de Almada”.


Ghost

A solo interpreted by a man that unfolds momentarily, giving rise to two characters with independent speeches and accompanied by utopian visions. Luis Marrafa's interpretation give place into a genesis of images, deep and abstract, of an individual devastated by the fact that he is alive to the exact age his father was when he died. The piece, marked by a deliberate scenic and choreographic strangeness, follows the unraveling of metaphysical thinking in which various questions arise about the existence, the absurdity of life and the presence of death.
