The performance “Empty home” is an attempt at taming the landscape after a loss. It's a story about the disappearing points of reference and the flame of life burning out slowly. Home is not only a place, but it is also an inner feeling of safety, a feeling of dignity, being settled in the world, a contact with oneself, one's body and its history. The moment of loss, when our home stops existing, is a turning point. At that point, we begin to search for sense and try to fill the void. The body, defenceless and vulnerable, somewhere between fear and the need for love, drifts, looking for itself in a meeting with another body.


The performance was realized thanks to the financial help of the Marshal of Pomeranian Voivodeship and the Gdansk City Council. Coproduced by Winda Club. The performance was realised in cooperation with Club Zak for the Gdansk Dance Festival.
