Taking a ceremonial & ritualistic approach in which migrant bodies deliver a background of cultural diversity, the performance inquires how the collective action reclaims/reshapes the space, occupies the memory of the visitors/spectators, and transforms the encounter into a ritual of togetherness through interaction.
The ritual/ceremony is choreographed as an authentic practice employing performative movements and vocalisation, while attempting to shift the focus from the physicality of the building and towards the construction of a collective/active memory.
The togetherness will leave its traces in the space and in the being of every person who contributed to the ritual. It could be a ritual of self-liberation, retrieving togetherness and conceiving a new spirit of the space beyond its materiality.
