This piece is inspired by poetic images and metaphors of the premises of the houses we live in. The work reflects on the primary human need to inhabit places, to seek other kind of shelters, to inhabit new homes that mark different life stages.

Friction Dance Theatre (FDT) is a London based dance company under the direction of contemporary dance artist Ben Logan. The company combines theatrical skill and physicality to tackle a range of interesting topics to challenge and engage its audiences. Working on the aesthetic of form, Logan works to sculpt his pieces into a visual pleasure, and brings the dance back into dance from a new and unique perspective.
