Beau Dixon returns to FOLDA with HOME, following his 2021 Innovation Residency at the Festival.
In collaboration with dancer/choreographer Linda Garneau, HOME is physical, expressionistic exploration of Dixon’s response to a home invasion. Incorporating, movement, sound, and projections, this BETA stage of development of the piece moves further into the senses and emotions associated with PTSD as well as the loss of identity and the struggle to maintain a sense of ‘HOME’.
Dixon and Garneau are working with acclaimed director Peter Pasyk and Musician/Sound Designer Andrew Penner to recount the memory of this life changing event and explore the multiple perspectives through movement.
HOME asks: Can we subvert how we look at Trauma? Instead of suppressing the things we are most afraid of, can we invite them to the table?
