What is home? Is it a place, a feeling, an identity? Is it safety or belonging? Does it come with us when we move or do we leave it behind? Is the notion of ‘home’ rapidly evolving in light of current world migration?
A unique live event series where participatory theatre meets collective conversation. Devised in collaboration with IDEO, Creative Tensions explores the opposing forces that inform our daily lives and is a collective conversation expressed in movement, wherein participants reveal where they stand on an issue by virtue of where they stand in the room. Guided by a moderator and provoked by speakers (we call them protagonists) who approach the topic from different perspectives, Creative Tensions is an eye-opening, reflective, and inspiring live experience.
Protagonists: Hanane Hajj Ali (Lebanon), Allison Phipps (UK)
Moderator: Philip Himberg (USA)
