Come in. Sit down. Explore.
Imagination and memory combine to suggest that the everyday world is not always as solid as it might seem...
A House Repeated is an interactive performance-game inviting you to explore an imagined building without leaving your seat. Inspired by early computer adventure games, this unique experience combines the simplicity of bare-bones storytelling with the excitement of contemporary “sandbox” style video games.
Two performers stand on a bare stage and describe another, imaginary place. By giving instructions like “Go North” or “Pick up the lamp”, the audience works together to navigate through the described space, overcoming obstacles and exploring this other world without leaving their seats. Occasionally breaking into lyrical passages describing places from myth and memory, the performers eventually invite the audience to build a new world for all to explore together.
