ROMA is a dance theatre production created by Anglo-Sicilian choreographer Anthony Lo-Giudice. Told as a semi-biographical account of Anthony’s English and Sicilian heritage, it explores belonging, nationhood and cross-cultural identity.
Within ROMA, Anthony crafts the intimate musings of his parent’s accounts of one another, shaping them into a series of fleeting memories and imaginations, recollecting their tempestuous jostle between love and cultural divide.
The piece examines our own individual quests for someone to love and a place to call home, while considering the complexities of heritage, tradition, language and family.
