Displaced. Exiled. Transplanted. And yet always in the process of planting new roots. This is the basic ambivalence in the lives of many migrants. With her project Displaced/Angekommen, dancer and choreographer Maria Colusi brings this feeling on stage: How do bodies dance in the transition from an old to a new home? How does the migrant experience find its physical expression, oscillating between here and there, past and future, aspiration and reality? An intimate family story is a metaphor for the inner conflicts of an entire population. Danced, cast, and drawn on stage and on paper. Displaced/Angekommen is inspired by two pictograms from the archive of the Migrantas collective. The music and soundscape accompanying the dance piece are composed by Argentinian composer Edgardo Rudnitzky.
