How are we in our home space? What does our home give to us, what do we give to our home? Does it reflect us, or reflect what we aspire to be?

With This home is us, choreographer, performer, and teacher Stacy Matthew Spence continues his choreographic interest in environment as impetus for creativity with a new work made in collaboration with fellow dancer Joanna Kotze, musician Jesse Stiles, musician Roarke Menzies, and instrument designer Ali Momeni.

In exploring how a person relates to a particular space or place they find themselves in, Spence partnered one musician in Kotze’s home and one musician in his own home. In This home is us “our experiences of the environments will be layered on each other to conjure a new home created and occupied by all of us,” explains Spence. “In our lives we are creating, following, and participating in experiences, forms, and systems in our environment that may be invisible or unaware to us or taken for granted. That is what I am interested in noticing.”
