Mama I'm Coming Home
Creation by Guy Weizman och Roni Haver
Mama, I’m Coming Home by Guy Weizman/Roni Haver confronts us through social reflection, humor and dynamic vocabulary. Raw and exciting in their approach, they explore the migrant body, soul and longing through a blend of dance, text, music and visuals. Live music performed on stage plays an important role. Mama, I’m Coming Home was created specifically for GöteborgsOperans Danskompani.
Mama, I’m Coming Home is a piece about social identity, questions about the past, about belonging. About heimweh … but to where? A life consumed by memories of the magical world you left behind. But what about taking the responsibility and maturity to accept the new reality? A life formed on the continuum between dream and reality, between west and east, between the location of the soul and the location of the body.
— Guy Weizman, choreographer
Guy Weizman and Roni Haver, the inventive duo behind Mama, I’m Coming Home, are Israeli choreographers based in the Netherlands.
