Home, a new multi-disciplinary production from Physical Lab’s Yorgos Karamalegos, will be premiered in Liverpool this Autumn. Home is an original devised multi-disciplinary performance inspired by Euripides’ Medea, which will immerse the audience in a world of powerful emotions and senses. Euripides offers a timeless study on political and social issues, as well as deep contemporary insight into the human psychic.
Home is directed by celebrated performer and physical acting teacher Yorgos Karamalegos, who is also the co-founder of Tmesis Theatre. This is Yorgos’ first main production after a decade co-creating work with Tmesis Theatre, which includes four years of theatre making research and actors’ training through his international laboratory for performance, Physical Lab.
Yorgos Karamalegos said: “Home signifies a new beginning in my career after a decade with Tmesis and four years of research in theatre making through the laboratory. I now feel equipped to experiment with daring ways of creating theatre. My ultimate goal is to create deeply engaging theatrical experiences, where my audiences can make their own interpretations on the story and to reflect them on aspects of their own lives.”
The show is produced by Hope Street Ltd and Physical Lab, and is supported by The Arts Council of England, Tmesis Theatre, Physical Fest and La Replique. It will be staged at the city’s independent Unity Theatre on 24th and 25th November. Home will then transfer to London, where it can be seen in January 2016 at the Chisenhale Dance Space.
Home is at Unity Theatre from Tuesday 24 November – Wednesday 25 November 2015 at 8:00pm. Tickets £12 & £10 concs. Book online at unitytheatreliverpool.co.uk or call Box Office 0151 709 4988.
