Homeland

live sound/music for film/installation
by Hans Van den Broeck / Cie Soit
2013

In 2011 Hans Van den Broeck went to Australia to shoot ‘Homeland’, a film coproduced by the Sydney Performers Group (premiere Fraser Studio’s, Sydney).

The Belgian premiere of ‘Homeland’ which took place at Renold in Brussels, turned into a hybrid event including the film itself, an installation and a concert. This evocative mosaic portrays the life of a group of people who took refuge in a utopian community, a safe and secured hideaway from the world. Many of the members leave and make their way back to the city, others stay and hold on to their choices, floating like driftwood in time, hiding in fantasies and a life that has become fictional. They escape their entrapment by constructing a surrogate existence, drafting a theatre play with no ending.
