Spanning across Instagram, Zoom, email, WhatsApp, phone and good old-fashioned post, THE PLACE I CALL HOME was a playful digital festival of new theatre that you could access and engage with from the comfort of your own home.
Two weeks of brand-new international plays co-written across borders during lockdown were delivered via WhatsApp, personalised email, and post.
The three plays shared were A BRIEF HISTORY OF STRUGGLE by Dipo Baruwa-Etti and Calle Fuhr, IN TANDEM by Travis Alabanza and Magdalena Zarębska-Wegrzyn and POSTA AEREA by Giuditta Mingucci and Rosie MacPherson
Alongside the three collaborations, there were free online workshops for new actors, writers, directors and producers, including Open Auditions for actors currently unrepresented by agents, and open access Q&A’s with nationally celebrated playwrights.
Co-Producers: Paines Plough, Theater Ludowy, Elsinor Centro di Produzione Teatrale in Milan, and Stand & Be Counted Theatre, the UK’s first Theatre of Sanctuary
