The music and dance performance "(NO) ROOTS" with Hannah Ma from Hong Kong / Germany and Josep- Maria Balanyà from Barcelona / Brussels was created in the European Academy of Art (Trier-Germany) in October 2019. As a choreographer with German-Chinese roots, Hannah Ma is equally in demand internationally, as is Josep-Maria Balanyà, an ardent champion of the freedom of Catalan culture. Both improvise on the subject and interpret it in their own way: Hannah as a dancer, Balanyà as pianist and composer. The topic is settled in the field of tension between "ROOTS", which bind, inhibit and / or give security for a self-chosen freedom (of the homeland).
