I know where your House is!

A physical and visual dance performance about meeting other people and putting up walls

Reviews: “Humanism jumps out of the cardboard boxes when Aaben Dans creates a sensuously rich dance on fear of the strange in ‘I know where your house is living'”
***** Børneteateravisen, Anne Middelboe Christensen

“Thomas Eisenhardt and Catherine Poher creates a new kind of political dance that is neither manifest nor tale. A dance that in its abstract sense creates bodily images of humanism”
***** Børneteateravisen, Anne Middelboe Christensen

“…Successful and balanced in Catherine Poher’s firm and yet poetic instruction”
***** Børneteateravisen, Anne Middelboe Christensen

“Sometimes fences are necessary, but they do not benefit the neighbourhood. When you put up a wall the other part becomes invisible, and that is a bigger threat than being able to see them.”
David Newman, Professor in Political Geography, Ben-Gurion University

Boundaries are drawn, moved and crossed. In a universe of brown moving boxes, three men are constantly occupied with building, converting, demolishing and moving walls. An echo from our world filled with invisible walls between humans and visible walls of steel and concrete that separate people and nations.

A tribute to the millions of men, women and children who are locked in and hidden behind their dreams of a better life – and a tribute to those of us who have the freedom not to lock ourselves in behind walls of fear…
