(Vancouver, BC) ~ HOME inspires the search for a healthy home within ourselves and our communities. When a favourite local hangout is threatened with a corporate takeover, the employees and regulars band together to save the place they call home. In doing so, they passionately showcase the importance of their community by giving those within it a voice. Through a journey of brave disclosures and transformation, they discover their individual and collective power. With the desire for positive social change, HOME encourages dialogue and explores the importance of support regarding violation of home within ourselves and our communities. HOME includes non-graphic discussions about body issues, substance use and sexual assault. HOME is very moving with its hopeful outlook. There is comedy interspersed throughout with engaging live music.
HOME is written and performed by YOUTH from all over the LOWER MAINLAND: Sophie Elder-Labrie (Surrey), Brogan Ho (Burnaby), Christopher Rahim (East Vancouver), Nicholas Roe (Langley), Elodie Doumenc (West Vancouver), Joe Baker (East Vancouver), Parker Phelan (Vancouver), Una Spasovski (Vancouver), Latisha Wadhams (East Vancouver), Haley Christenson (Vancouver West), Sian Kilpatrick (Strathcona), and Laurel Trueman (Surrey). In collaboration with Some Assembly Theatre artists Valerie Methot, Ken Lawson, Jeremy Baxter, Anna Talbot, Athena Ivison and Allen Morrison.
