Homewerk uses dance as a medium for story telling to engage our ideas of home in creative and physical ways. Four dancers tell stories through words and choreographed movement, using cardboard props that create vivid imagery as they transform from houses into villages, to screens at an airport to medieval gowns. These stories take the idea of home beyond physical space to more abstract concepts of shelter, comfort and acceptance.
Homewerk is an interdisciplinary performance encompassing visual art, theatre, social studies and dance. The stories
are emotionally engaging and intellectually provocative and there is a wide-range of multi-ethnic stories to choose from.
On its recent (seventh) tour, Homewerk proved highly engaging for adult and adolescent audiences, and has in the past encountered success with elementary school audiences. Homewerk can be presented stand-alone (45:00), single performance fee: $3,000, negotiable.
It is also available paired with Nail to House (35:00) and intermission (full evening (1:00), single performance fee for combined program: $3,500.00, negotiable.
Mascall Dance's performance on the study of home and the search for belonging acts as an outline that can be followed to either recreate the same show, or produce a 'home-grown' version.
