Home – A Legislative Theatre Experiment

VENUE CHANGE: Thursday 28th November 2019
2pm - 7pm

Please note: this event is now being held at the following venue.

Norton Park
57 Albion Road


At Home. Oya has to leave. Jessica puts one more thing on credit. Paul reaches for his son. Ryan hears his landlord’s key in the lock. Gregor watches the letterbox. Home is three new plays devised and performed by people with lived experience. Questioning what Home means to each of us, we ask how Home can be safe and secure for everyone.

This latest piece from Edinburgh-based Active Inquiry is presented in partnership with Shakti Women’s Aid, The Bethany Christian Trust and The Alma project. Home uses puppetry, movement and first-hand accounts to explore why Home is not always where the heart is. Exploring issues including mental health, domestic abuse and addiction, Home shows us the problems and asks us to be a part of the solution.

After a Scottish Tour of the production we are coming home to Out of the Blue, Edinburgh for our second Legislative Theatre experiment! Legislative theatre was developed in Brazil but has been used successfully all around the world including in Austria and New York City. It uses theatre to bring together community members, activists, politicians, policy makers and more to dialogue together and come up with ideas for what new policy or law could look like.

The event will include theatre, music, food and participatory policy-making! Everyone is welcome. Please let us know of any dietary or access needs and we will do our best to meet them.
