(Excerpt of Our House)

 

Our house is a theatre play exploring the questions of home and house in a time where people are sometimes forced to leave theirs, building new lives and new relationships in different countries, with different cultures

The play is a sharing of memories between the comedians and the audience. Memories of houses morph into thoughts of home, of home country, identity and community. Our house is also the stories about houses, where people lived, that were abandoned and lost.

The play is performed by two Rwandans and three Germans. The play is in mainly in English (80%), with some texts in German, Russian, French and Kinyarwanda. Our house premiered in Germany on 17th September.
