What does ‘home’ mean to you?
‘when in roam’ is a multi-arts exciting work which explores the theme of home and belonging using humour and poignant storytelling.
This project combines dance/movement, aerial, spoken word and original musical composition in four languages (Welsh, Spanish, French and English), bringing about a performance suitable for all audiences.
After roaming Puerto Rico, Madrid, Scotland and Wales, the collective, made up of LGBTIA+ identifying performers, is especially excited to be performing at Circomedia during Bristol Pride!
Thania Acarón is a South-Wales based Puerto Rican choreographer and performer, who co-founded an interdisciplinary collective of artists called Orphaned Limbs Collective. The collective morphs dance, physical theatre, live music, and spoken word. It features engaging, multi-arts projects with a strong voice about the human condition.
Project includes four languages and about 40% text. Movement-based piece with lots of imagery. Includes captioning on the projection.
Q&A After show.
“Rich with personal and political relevance, the content of when in roam strikes to the core of issues with which we as a group are wrestling, whether personally, regionally, nationally and/or internationally.” – Dr. Ed Walton, University of Aberdeen
