Open House

2014 - 2015 | Directed by Orit Azaz, Open House is an immersive, ever-evolving large-scale circus theatre installation where anything can happen and everything becomes an excuse for performance and play.

Flowing through the town, setting up in a city square, unfolding washing lines, flags, umbrellas and piles of bric-a-brac, there is no big top but a colony of musicians and circus performers exploding out of caravans - a joyous menagerie of circus chaos setting the town alive.

Building on the open hearted approach to collaboration with local communities of Parklife, and the thrilling, large scale circus theatre of Barricade, Open House is a daytime experience for public spaces, activating the city centre, high street or park for an hour, a day, a weekend or a week and transforming it into a circus village, where passers-by become spectators, communities become spectacle and everyone feels part of the story.
