In the dance performance Alphabets of Flesh, choreographer and dancer Roshanak Morrowatian makes tangible what it is like to be a body in diaspora. Together with dancer Mami Izumi, she depicts the fragmented experience of time and space of people who have left their homeland. The here and there and the now and then merge into memories and dreams.

What remains of your origins when you are displaced? What experiences - even from generations before you - are stored in your body? In a sensory journey through movements and images of the diaspora, Morrowatian searches for the feeling of home. Where and with whom is home? Can your body be your home? Do you need the past to define the 'now'?

Alphabets of Flesh uses dance, language, music and video art to create a temporary (t)home where differences are embraced and uprooting is a source of strength.

Roshanak Morrowatian (Iran, 1989) received her BA in dance and MA in dance composition from Folkwang University of the Arts (D). She danced in the works of Marina Abramović, Pina Bausch and Isabelle Beernaert, among others. In 2021, she founded dance company Rover together with Mami Izumi.

Rover creates interdisciplinary dance performances based on the fervent desire for a more harmonious society. Unnoticed details, invisible people and forgotten stories take centre stage in Morrowatian's choreographies. With her performance Kites, for instance, she gave a voice to refugee children, and with House of Strength she transformed a masculine, Persian tradition into a paragon of inclusion. Her work was awarded the Nederlandse Dansdagen Prize and the BNG Bank Dance Award, among others.

The Maas is an inspiration, a lover that flows through the heart of Venlo. Just as the Maaspoort is also the beating heart of the city. The Maas is lively, beautiful, energetic and on the move. The gate stands for the explorer. The guide. This one is always open to something new. Something challenging with a hint of rebel. This one leads you to new inspiration, (dis)excitement and enjoyment.
