It’s the not-so-distant future and the lockdown is over.
A group of housemates are throwing a birthday party and everyone is invited! Only problem?
No one knows if the guest of honour will show up…
Bent but not broken by the pandemic and Sydney’s current lockdown, this ensemble of emerging theatre makers invites you to a party with a difference. Join the Originate team for a digital performance from the comfort of your own home (or phone). Explore the rooms of their house, listen to private and public conversations, message the housemates, and attempt to discover why our honoured guest is missing in action. Along the way, you’ll glimpse the joys and frustrations of making a house a home in the 21st century.
“This show is the collective effort of eight emerging theatre-maker-makers who want to take you out of your lockdown low,” says the show’s director Sophie Kelly. “Ultimately, this show is an experiment… in narrative, in form, in storytelling and in digital technology. It is an experiment in creating intricate and detailed relationships when your storytellers/creators have never met in real life. It is an attempt to approximate the warmth of a house and the intimacy within in it.”
Our House is a live digital experience. To book and see the show, participants will receive a free ticket via email with a unique link to access the Our House experience page. This page will then be a digital foyer and guide to a physically distanced, but socially packed experience.
