A site-specific production commissioned by the LIFT for Out of Lift in 1996.
Puppetry, performance and installation art for under-fives.
Houseworks was a ground-breaking piece of theatre for young audiences. Set in an old house in Brixton, where every room was a different world, the audience was greeted by Ernie, an old man puppet, who then welcomed them into his house.
Small groups were guided around the building and as the house revealed its secrets, the children were engaged in each room by puppets, performers and installations.
Houseworks was performed in London (1996) and Belfast (1998).
“Release your imagination and these places will surrender rewarding secrets”.
