Online event - performed live on Zoom

by Victor Esses and Yorgos Petrou

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?

Customers will be emailed a link in the days before the performance.

This performance will have Audio Description and Captioning available. There will be a post show Q&A session, also with live Captioning.

"Unfamiliar at Home is honest, it captures the uncertainty of starting a family and the emotional impact that has within a relationship … A resonant piece of digital theatre not afraid of highlighting the complicated process of starting a family"

Theatre Full Stop

 

"To create performance art, a form that demands to be seen live, over Zoom is a tough proposition, and yet Esses and Petrou have succeeded, and their piece stands out from the other shows made for a digital audience." 

★★★★ The Reviews Hub

 

"It’s brutally open and personal, and Victor and Yorgos tell a story that deserves to be told and needs to be heard." 

★★★★ West End Best Friend
