My body is not
here-it's some space in between
it's not some-it's space.
Vid V. Vodušek

Assemble yourself is a solo dance piece dealing with the relation between identity and migration.
It is an abstract journey that explores how one's inner landscapes of thoughts, values, emotions and beliefs are permanently reshaped by spatial and temporal dislocations, resulting from a physical act of movement across actual and/or symbolic borders.
The work is a personal way of coming to terms with change and impermanence of human identity; celebrating the freedom that these characteristics offer us to continually assemble ourselves.
