Requiem – Homunculus

“The body as object. A piece of meat without identity. A unique complex of natural mechanism and its originality. Mentality and emotion linked to language and its reactions. The instrument with which we are born and die.”

The idea of the choreography was born from an injury of one of the performers and other physical and psychological experiences of the other performers. The performance premiered at the Empape Dance Festival in Galicia and was then thematically reprised in conjunction with the choreography of Letter at the Duncan Centre Theatre in the Czech Republic.
