Sketches for Home

Sketches for Home is a play about homes and the thoughts that the word conjures. It deals with the memories, experiences and hopes of the clients in housing units. The group is made of members and staff of Näsinkulma Clubhouse, who together with a professional director and a researcher created this play to examine different meanings of home in the contexts of housing services and the social welfare system. The material for the play was collected in the spring of 2017 through drama workshops in the housing units.

The premiere of the play was at ERROR-festival in Bratislava, Slovakia on the 24th of November, 2017

The performance at OFF Tampere is a part of MielenTilat – Home Theatre Festival which focuses on mental health and drama methods.
