It's time to embrace our diversity and stop defining who we are by rejecting "the others". wee dance's "iHome" questions our notion of "It's us against them". But even we who consider ourselves tolerant – are we willing to face uncomfortable questions that might challenge our views?
Where am I at home? Is it the place where I came from? Or rather where I feel that I belong? What do things like "family" and "tradition", "history" and "nation" mean to us today? What makes us a "nation" or a "people"? Is "home" my house? My town? Or is it everywhere, where people speak my language? In the virtual world of social media, physical borders and barriers seem less tangible. How valid can these geographical definitions of "home" still be today?
And: Are those who live on the other side of my "home's" borders necessarily foreigners? Or are these borders mere illusion, a delusion?
We've all experienced moments in which we've felt excluded; in which we asked ourselves: might there be another milieu, some other place in which we might feel more adequate, more like we belong, more at home?
