What makes this type of theatre different?

Other than the amazing venue, From Home to Ocean is a "forum theatre" experience. This means that once the actors have enacted a scene depicting an environmental concern, social problem or cultural struggle, YOU will be able to give comment and even join them on stage to reenact the scene with an intervention that you think could solve the problem.

What then unfolds is an interactive, collective re-writing and re-enactment of the script, centred on how and why plastics enter the ocean, what makes it a huge problem, solutions that are already in circulation and most importantly, we open up the next level of problem-solving: what have we not yet thought of? What other ways are there of thinking about the problem? Come around to the Aquarium to find out just how this plays out... 

Don't want to be in the limelight? Not a problem, you can be as interactive as you like in a forum theatre or simply enjoy the show!
