A group of performers from acclaimed theatre company Cardboard Citizens is squatting in The Bunker to present a playful exploration of housing from the slums of Victorian London to the madness of London today.

An immersive multi-story speculation on need, greed and good intentions, Home Truths is revealed through the world premieres of nine short plays by some of the UK’s most exciting playwrights: Sonali Bhattacharyya, Lin Coghlan, EV Crowe, Anders Lustgarten, Nessah Muthy, Chris O’Connell, Stef Smith, David Watson and Heathcote Williams with Sarah Woods.

Home Truths will look back at the history of UK housing, from the Victorian housing crisis through to squatting in the 1970s, the ravages of Rachmanism in the 1950s and white flight in the 21st century. The nine plays will be split into three Cycles. Each Cycle can be seen as a stand-alone production, or alternatively audiences can take part in a theatrical sit in and watch all nine plays over the course of a day in one of two special Tri-Cycle performances.

Shows:

  • Slummers by Sonali Bhattacharyya
  • The Ruff Tuff Cream Puff Estate Agency by Heathcote Williams with Sarah Woods
  • Back to Back to Back by Stef Smith
  • The Table by Lin Coghlan
  • Put The Schwarzes Into De-Stat by Nessah Muthy
  • The House With the Yellow Front Door by Anders Lustgarten

Explore the world of Science Fiction and imagine a new garden out of the old.

Using the inspiration of Arthur C Clarke, Azimov, Philip K Dick and Douglas Adams SGP are going to grow our imaginations from childish roots up into something more.

But in selecting the protocols for this mission we looked back not forward.

In 1889 a convention of the ‘gentlemen of the road’ came up with, and ratified by vote, a version of the following, they called it the Hobo Code.

SGP have called it: THE GARDENERS GUIDE TO THE GALAXY.

Mission protocols:

  • Decide your own life, don’t let another person run or rule you
  • Behave honourably at all times and respect the local law and officials
  • Do not take advantage of someone who is in a vulnerable situation
  • Do not allow yourself to become a stupid drunk and set a bad example for the treatment of other Gardeners
  • Always respect nature, do not leave rubbish where you are playing
  • You are in a community, pitch in and help
  • Try to stay clean
  • If you haven’t come to learn, come to teach
  • When traveling, take your trip respectfully, take no personal chances & cause no problems
  • Do not allow other Gardeners to harm anyone, expose all abusers to authorities
  • People who intentionally cause harm to others are the worst people to infest any society
  • Help all who are lost, and try to induce them to return home
  • Look after your fellow Gardeners whenever and wherever needed, you may need their help someday
  • Spread love

Exploring light and colour with an invasion of coloured mist. Colour is caught in a state of suspension, obscuring any detail of surface or depth. Instead, attention is focussed on the process of perception itself. Janssens’s work is both disorienting and uplifting as the daily wonder of conscious experience is given renewed emphasis.

The installation is deliberately disorientating with very limited visibility. Excellent for Instagram pics!
