At Home in Gaza and London

Station House Opera  

At Home in Gaza and London follows the lives of a dozen people living in two locations separated by great political, economic and physical divides. 

By using a mix of live-streaming and recorded video, a single performance space is created where artists work together. They occupy each other's homes, streets and other social spaces. Sharing their everyday behaviour and concerns, as they dissolve into each other or become ghostly protagonists in the drama.

By exploring the ideas and practicalities of home, the realities of life in Gaza and London become the medium for an expression of physical existence liberated by global communication.

At Home in Gaza and London opens a new way for artists to engage with each other in difference places across the world, allowing audiences to participate, while eliciting a direct and personal response to the problems of Gaza and its isolation. 

"It takes a few moments to realise whether we are looking at England or Gaza and which of the characters are really there."
