5 Minuten Heimat

Being born is the first exile. Because life on earth is an eternal diaspora.

People are on the move. Every day, in every generation. They strive to change the reality of their lives across internal and external boundaries. To do this, they look for new areas of activity and leave the “safe haven” – their home.

Our birth is the first and most formative migration of our existence. The lottery of life determines the reality in which we come into this world. Migration here is not only the result of the geopolitical problems of our time, but also deals intensively with the personal triggers and emotional distress of people in different life situations.

In what feels like “5 minutes”, the topics are dealt with in a choreographic performance that premieres at the Hafenmuseum Bremen – Speicher XI in Bremen’s Überseestadt district. The artistic team consists of migrants with and without disabilities. They have left their geographical home or moved away from their family home. They emigrated or fled. From politics in their own country, from cultural or social limitations, from their neighborhood or their families, from a lack of understanding or perhaps even from themselves and their own character.
