  • Welcome home is created in an atmosphere of crisis and uncertainty.  The title of the piece refers to a journey of the individual or the society – that cycle we seem to be destined to repeat for eternity. The cycle of growth, prosperity, difficulties and re-evaluation.
  • The choreographers dig under the surface and examine the human being´s need to belong, grow and enjoy as well as the conflict with our surroundings  and the structure of civil society.
  • They work with concepts like narcissism, greed, disappointment and exhaustion in the open and symbolic way contemporary dance offers.  
  • Can we break out of that cycle? What is the power of the individual?  Where does freedom and happiness lie?
