This summer, audiences are being invited to help the residents of 12 Laburnum Drive find their way home, in an immersive production with a difference.
When the UK went into lockdown the residents of 12 Laburnum Drive, Brockley took the government advice very seriously.
One month on they opened their front door to find themselves in unfamiliar surroundings. Their little house had floated away and come to rest in the year 2070.
Although the future seems to be almost Utopian, they have started to think about how they could get home.
They have discovered that Zoom still works on their laptops, and by a strange setting in the latest upgrade they seem to be able to contact people from 2020.
That’s where you come in. For five nights only, a very limited audience will be enlisted to help them find their way back (if they want to), and maybe even to meet them in person a special socially distanced celebration.
The show itself will take place on Zoom in the future, the present and the slip stream of time in-between. Teatro Vivo will bring their signature brand of interactive immersive theatre to the digital stage; taking audiences on a journey from the comfort of their living rooms.
The House That Slipped is Teatro Vivo’s response to the current situation in the theatre industry. They are creating theatre that still feels connected to communities and employing arts freelancers in a time when they are fighting for survival.
The House That Slipped is funded by Arts Council England through the Emergency fund.
When: 3rd – 7th August 2020 at 7.30pm (with a live socially distanced finale on the 8th)
Where: Online via Zoom (and a secret location)
£: Tickets cost £10
