Synopsis


"There's no doubt. This is my home

I occur here, I

deceive myself greatly here.

This is my home detained in time"

(Mario Benedetti)


Four travellers

Four lives on the verge of the abyss

Four departures and arrivals

One unifying desire: find a home.


This is the story of a journey based on the life experiences of migrants in a modern metropolis.


Four young travellers, from different corners of the world, leave everything behind and embark on a journey with nothing but a burning desire to belong and fit in somewhere else.


But can reality match their expectations?


I Occur Here 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.
