Open Homes tells personal stories from Brisbane’s neighbourhoods — this is theatre in someone’s living room.
Ever wanted to step inside someone’s house, out of sheer curiosity? Open Homes is your invitation—a unique theatre experience coming to Brisbane in 2019.
The doors of local homes will be flung open over three weekends as residents invite us into their private spaces and enchant us with personal stories, histories and anecdotes. Facilitated by Brisbane-based theatre-makers, each 30-minute performance will deliver an intimate view of the heartbreak and humour, comedy and chaos, and domestic dramas and dreams that take place in our apartment buildings, Queenslanders and neighbourhoods across the city.
This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
