Home, Small As The World

"Kaleidoscopic, liquid beauty.....
tremendously stimulating." Three Weeks

Welcome to Phil Bancroft’s fantastic multi-media musical odyssey- exploring what ‘Home’ means to us, today.

Phil explains: “I started thinking about the word ‘Home’, at the time of The Homecoming. As an idea it became very rich. If you look across the room at someone- a stranger or someone you know well- Where do they come from? What was their childhood like? What does feeling ‘at home’ mean to them? What is their home like, their home life? What do they do there? What do they feel about where they live, their country, the government, their planet? These things are very central to who we are as people and who we are as a society. It captured my interest, so I found it a beautiful theme to create a show about.”
