Combining elements of performance, storytelling and applied theatre, these soundwalks invite us to visit different places or just to close our eyes and let ourselves be guided by the voices of the migrant domestic and care workers, who encourage us to reflect on the power of a voice and a story coming from the heart. Home Makers leads us to rethink our definition of theatrical space and, perhaps, the limits of performance and the paradox of presence in absence. The voices in Home Makers seem to ask us: In a world where you can be anything, can you be aware of unheard stories and acknowledge the steps of those who stood in this place before you?
Listen to Gabriel Vivas-Martinez, co-Artistic Director of The International Online Theatre Festival, Ella Parry-Davies, the creator of “Homemakers,” and Ariadne Mikou.
