This feel-good experience has been designed to tour in care homes, bringing a fun, laughter-inducing, connective performance to care home residents across Lewisham.
Bringing performances to those who may find it more difficult to witness performances in person, The Home is a 30-minute show by artist Christopher Green that allows care home residents to connect with those who care for them, as well as the world beyond the walls of their care homes. The show was created as a direct result of the pandemic and the impact it had on the care sector for both those who care and those who are cared for, as well as their loved ones.
The Home asks audiences to consider what it means to be vulnerable, to be cared for, as it is something most of us don’t want to do. The Home also seduces you with exciting content and before you know it, you’re thinking about ageing in a more positive way, considering how care is delivered in other cultures, potentially advocating for change in the sector, and balancing the negative view of residential care in the media.
