I Occur Here
Mariana Aristizabal & Malena Arcucci
“There’s no doubt. This is my house
I occur here, I
deceive myself greatly here.
This is my house detained in time”
Four performers embark on a journey to start over. But is that even possible? As they pack up their belongings, say goodbye to the past and step forward towards the opportunity to reinvent themselves, and become someone entirely new, can reality match their expectations?
I Occur Her is a devised physical theatre piece, conceived by Mariana Aristizabal (Colombia) and Malena Arcucci (Argentina) that gathers from the experiences of London-based international artists to redefine the notion of home and explore our seemingly unending capacity for adaptation.
Starting from a shared sense of cultural, linguistic and physical in-betweenness, this ensemble piece explores the search for stability in a foreign country.
