Home as a space of identity, home as a body and body as a home.

International multi-genre project by performer Ewa Żurakowska based on the book House of Day, House of Night by Olga Tokarczuk.

Multidisciplinary project Home Beyond the Borders? is based on the themes from the novel House of Day, House of Night by Nobel Laureate Olga Tokarczuk. The monodrama takes the audience into the realm of sounds, poetic images and oneiric texts, video screenings and movement. Into the world of dreams, surreal and visionary reality inspired by dreams and visions of the Polish author. The performance also draws on local legends and tales from the Kłodzko and Nowa Ruda regions present in the novel.

Home Beyond the Borders? explores the theme of home as a space of identity, home as a body and body as a home. It raises questions about transgressing boundaries between people and worlds, dream and reality, community and intimacy. It also constitutes the process of putting down roots in the landscape of the borderland in the Polish-Czech mountains, where the Nobel Prize winner’s book was written and where the performance is presented. A strong emphasis is placed on the issues of identity, putting down roots, uprooting and returning, especially since the action (both of the book and the performance) takes place in the ‘regained territories’, an area with Polish, Czech and German roots.
