What makes a house a home?
Poetical Inhabitants is an innovative dance-theatre work that invites you to consider what makes a house a home. Is it the people living there? Or the echoes of those who have lived there before you, seeped into the walls and never forgotten…
In an exciting collision of dance and architecture, an eerily beautiful and serenely volatile skeleton of a house is placed inside the theatre and within, two talented dancers reveal the story of a couple, their relationship, and the echoes of the houses’ past identities, inviting reflection on your perception of ‘home’ and the stories held within.
This work begins the moment the theatre doors are opened to reveal a cavernous space, with the bones of a house. Walk around and explore the installation before you take your seats and watch the lives of the inhabitants unfold in real time before your eyes.
Internationally renowned, Sunshine Coast choreographer, Melissa Lanham (LJ Projects), collaborates with architect Samantha Taylor (Project Fort Awesome) to construct a dwelling within a dwelling, inviting reflection on your perception of ‘home’ and the stories held within.
