Open Homes is a unique intimate theatre experience coming to Brisbane from October 25 to November 10.
Originating in Singapore (2015), the concept of theatre in a stranger's living room was created to find out if ordinary, everyday people would open their minds, their hearts and their homes to share stories about their lived experiences.
Presented by La Boite & Backbone, 15 doors across Brisbane's neighbourhoods - north to south - will be flung open over three weekends as residents invite us into their private homes and captivate us with their personal stories, histories and anecdotes.
Like meeting an old friend for the first time, residents and audiences will connect face to face for an hour, getting to know the other in the heart of the home.
In a world where we seldom meet, greet or know our neighbours, this exclusive experience allows us a rare opportunity to meet the people we live amongst, sharing meaningful, essential and inspiring stories.
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 apartment buildings, Queenslanders and neighbourhoods across the city. This is theatre like you've never experienced before.
