I Occur Here (o Aquí Sucedo)

I Occur Here (o Aquí Sucedo)

“There’s no doubt. This is my home
I occur here, I
deceive myself greatly here.
This is my home detained in time”
Mario Benedetti

Four travellers
Four lives on the verge of the abyss
Four departures and arrivals
One unifying desire: find a home.

This is the story of a journey based on the life experiences of migrants in a modern metropolis.  Four young travellers, from different corners of the world, leave everything behind and embark on  a journey with nothing but a burning desire to belong and fit in somewhere else.

But can reality match their expectations?

I Occur Here is a devised physical theatre piece, conceived by Mariana Aristizabal (Colombia) and Malena Arcucci (Argentina) that gathers from the experiences of London-based international artists to redefine the notion of home and explore our seemingly unending capacity for adaptation. Starting from a shared sense of cultural, linguistic and physical in-betweenness, this ensemble piece explores the search for stability in a foreign country.
