Unfamiliar at Home

Unfamiliar at Home

Mon 1 January 0001 - Tue 24 November 2020

Virtual performance via Zoom

What is a family? Where does it come from? Can we make our own?

Victor and Yorgos recently made some big plans, and they don’t know if they are ready for them. One is to create a performance together, the other is to have a baby…

An adaptation of their piece Unfamiliar, Unfamiliar at Home is performed in the artists’ home, on Zoom. This tender autobiographical performance combines text, movement and found objects to explore family, wanting children and being queer today. What do we need to do to live the life we always wanted?

Nominated for LUKAS Awards 2019 and shortlisted for Zealous Stories: Performance Prize.
