The concept of time at Hummingbird House was immediately apparent from the opening scene. Synchronisation of facial expressions, circus acrobatics and simple ‘chair’ set changes was crucial to the success of the performance – it was impeccable.
Authentic voice recordings provided a glimpse of life in a youth hospice, where chaos presents daily challenges. Having all five members of Flipside Circus on stage for the majority of time offered plenty of action, laced with humour, to depict themes of resilience and empathy.
The flip of victory in the final act reinforced a message of confidence … to not be afraid. I thoroughly enjoyed We Live Here and would recommend it to an audience of any age.
