Is immigration a need or a right?
It is not always a natural disaster or a war that makes people leave their home. Sometimes it is an existential urge to live, work and be somewhere else. But no matter how you look at it: the distinction between economic and political migration is no longer realistic. Especially in a world where cultural, intellectual and social exchanges and diversity prevail. This is why the Italian company Motus is proposing a solution: a post-nationalist, fluid and nomadic identity.
In 'PANORAMA' Motus explores the human need and fundamental right to migration. Whereas in the past, immigration was often a direct result of discrimination, it now seems to have become an intrinsic part of the human condition. 'PANORAMA' arose from the Great Jones Repertory Company actors: the New York interethnic group of performers, based in La MaMa, the mythical theatre in the East Village, founded by Ellen Stewart. After a residency at Vooruit, the European adaptation of the play is now being launched.
After acclaimed performances like 'Alexis, a Greek tragedy', 'Nella Tempesta' and the unforgettable 'MDSLX' - seen last season at Vooruit - Motus will return to Ghent in 2018.
