Home at MERL (performance)

November 25, 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

This promenade performance will highlight the performers’ past experiences of migration and resettlement whilst responding to the history, architecture, collections and habitual pathways of each space.

Dance company, Reside Dance, and members of the local community will take you on a journey of migration and encourage you to discover your own sense of belonging to the people around you and the different spaces that you inhabit.

Can recalling and sharing memories of migration and resettlement help performers develop new connections and a sense of home within the museum? Through witnessing and experiencing migration and resettlement, can audiences also develop a sense of home within the museum?


Want to get involved? This performance is preceded by two public workshops:

• Dance workshop 1: Thursday 23 November 6:00pm-9:30pm
• Dance workshop 2: Saturday 25 November 10:00am-1:00pm


This event is part of the series Revealing hidden stories
