THE HOUSE THAT BUILT US
a collaboration with theatre collective unm

A house in a city is about to be demolished. As it lays dying, it tells the story of its life. For so many years it has been a home for a stream of residents, coming and going. It has witnessed generations of people in their search for a bit of happiness, saw them wrestling with the cruelty of their failures. In the arms of this house, people were in love. Under its roof they found shelter when things got too rough. So join the house and be swept away with it by the radio music that resounded from the Thirties until today.

Eighty years of unsettling history. Never the 20th century has been portrayed like this!
