We Live Here
We Live Here is a participatory theatre experience created by Hand2Mouth and a vibrant group of collaborating artists. Taking place in a vacated store in the Lloyd Center mall, We Live Here, gathers the audience as a snapshot of a community within a civic space. Each show will differ by live-gathering the audience's personal responses creating a singular new ‘town’ for each show. The piece is designed to guide the audience through the passage of human lives through interactive touchpoints, to showcase and values the uniqueness of every life story in our community.
The performance aims to explore the commonality of difference; creating a snapshot of society by diving into what we have in common - and do not - in our lived experiences that help define our lives. The show celebrates profound unity through unique diversity in as inclusive, open, inviting and public a way as possible.
