Today much is said about decolonizing spaces, the thoughts, without first thinking about decolonizing our own body, reflect on their powers, pleasures and pains. We are colonized through bodies, summed up by modern anxieties, new diseases and enslavements. So, as a body that carries so many stories, meetings and places, expresses and communicates in a creative and engaged way? Is today, no pandemic context, when we need to stay at home socially apart, what is our relationship with the home and how can we make this space a welcoming place, creative and playful?

Through theatrical exercises, we will investigate the poetic powers of the body and the home, what body and home have to teach us and how we can articulate them in a playful game, creative and scenic, using their spaces and objects to create reinterpretations of works from the MAR Collection.
