This month, forget the challenges of lockdown for a few hours by inviting some live theatre into your home.
Unfamiliar at Home will embrace the new digital landscape to break down traditional performance boundaries, as Victor Esses and Yorgos Petrou share their autobiographical piece from their home direct to yours.
Unfamiliar at Home brings live theatre to you
Victor and Yorgos want to have children. They think. Maybe? Yes!
Through the use of familiar household objects, language and movement, Unfamiliar at Home interrogates Yorgos and Victor’s domesticity. They share a meal as a pre-recorded conversation talks about what a family consists of for them. They listen to interviews with members of queer families, and speak of the unsolicited advice they’ve received about becoming parents.
As Yorgos and Victor explore their memories, fears, and relationship, they reclaim the term ‘family’ and build themselves the role models that they missed out on themselves.
Beautifully intimate, full of gentle humour and tender moments, Unfamiliar is a stripped back autobiographical piece about being queer, wanting children and, ultimately, the human desire to create a legacy.
