Based on first hand research and interviews this piece looks at temporary accommodation and the effects on those who are forced to live in it.
Research and a wish to make the viewing experience democratic lead to the audience and actors sharing a common floor within the Dorfman Theatre and the performance playing within the ‘forest’ of chairs bluring the lines between stage and auditorium.
This feeling of communion is heightened by the lack of theatrical lighting and rooms are caped with a suspended ceiling covering the audience and actors alike.
