My Body My Home

by 71BODIES x Danselaboratoriet & Danseteateret (NO)

A gentle revolution that speaks to the heart

Varighet: 1 hour
My Body My Home is a unique collaboration between DansiT by Danselaboratoriet and, Danseteateret, DansiT and 71BODIES by Daniel Mariblanca
+ Accessibility: Audio Description in Norwegian

Danselaboratoriet consists of a group of people with both physical and learning disabilities and Danseteateret is formed with seniors over the age of 65.

Daniel Mariblanca of 71BODIES has created a commissioned /choreographic work combining these two groups. This work has been created together with around 30 dancers from Danselaboratoriet and Danseteateret, ranging in age from 24 to 89 years old. The richness of My Body My Home is centered and inspired by the great diversity in backgrounds, life experiences, bodies, physicalities, gender, age and mobility functions, etc. in the two companies.

Being part of a minority can generate stress and isolation, facing micro and macro discrimination on a daily basis. This can manifest in various forms in life; accessibility, job opportunities, representation (or lack thereof), institutional paternalism, ableism, tokenism, among others. Therefore, in My Body My Home focuses on creating artistic strategies to generate collective power - because we are stronger together.

“We focus on the beauty that exists in every single individual; a beauty that is unique and should not be taken for granted. Living in a society with clear beauty standards, we feel excluded from this rigid frame.

My body My home is created from within the margins thus shifting the perspective of beauty and what beauty can be - from the inside. The body is our main tool to express important matters. The body and the expression of dance is at the core of this production. We will let the body speak.

This project is an invitation to the audience to become our allies, to experience deep ways of expressing tenderness, courage, love, friendship, affection, and beauty. This is our revolution! A gentle revolution that speaks to the heart.


71BODIES is a transgender inclusive dance and performance company based in Bergen, Norway. Created by Daniel Mariblanca in 2016, the company continues to naturally evolve in a sustainable way whereby one project inspires the other and the next and so on. A core intention of the company is to work with/in marginalized communities; in particular communities where the body is at the center of the discussion.

There will be an Artist Talk after the performance Sunday 14. April
