Houseguest is de novo’s inaugural production: a mixed dance performance incorporating butoh and belly dance with live music and original composed music. It explores the tension between quotidian existence and other realities seen and unseen, invited and uninvited, real and imagined and explores themes of hibernation, transformation and awakening. It is about deep longing from below and the struggle to stay alive in hibernating sleep. We investigate these themes using a multi-layered, mixed-media approach.
