"I had to leave my home to become a person who can decide freely."


The longing for faraway places seems like a promise of freedom. A place where we can realise and rediscover ourselves. We try to go beyond the horizon of our own existence.
But in the search for a place of belonging, homesickness flares up. The desire for family or community. We long for grandma's apple pie and for a place where we feel understood and welcome.
Wanderlust and homesickness - two emotions that could not be more different and that challenge us to question our own and the foreign. Or does our home not simply lie in the relationships and connections we make?

In NOSTALGIA, choreographer Eva Borrmann explores the meaning of wanderlust and homesickness, using language, movement and sound to express emotions. NOSTALGIA creates a space in which the performers dialogues become visible through text and body. - A place that encourages us to rethink our notions of belonging and identity and celebrates the diversity of human experience.
