Part performance, part installation and part conversation, in Home spectators become co-creators as they share their stories of where they came from. Laying bare her own personal yarns from an amazing life, Brisbane theatremaker Margi Brown Ash weaves backwards and forwards through time and criss-crosses the globe in this moving and uplifting story of belonging and not belonging. Her own life is one of movement and constant reincarnation – from a schoolgirl dreaming of the future in 1960s country NSW, to a Number 96 soapie starlet in ’70s Sydney, then an actor in ’80s New York. Yet Brisbane has become a constant, a safe port from the rolling seas and changing tides of life. Home is a sensitive, affecting and intimate theatre experience. After development in Mexico, the USA and Brisbane’s Metro Arts and as part of La Boite’s indie season, the critically praised show has found a new home at QTC. “The original idea of Home grew out of a letter I received from one of my daughters while they were living in Palestine, describing how a family’s house had just been bulldozed down. The next few years were spent writing this play, as a way to understand the importance of home.” Margi Brown Ash“This sensitive, lively work empowers the audience as Brown Ash brings us all Home. A rare and refreshing theatrical work that connects the whole audience. Not to be missed.” Arts Hub This performance contains low level course language
