What is a family? Where does it come from? Can we make our own?

Theatre maker Victor Esses (Where to Belong) and visual artist Yorgos Petrou recently made some big plans, and they don’t know if they are ready for them. One is to make a show together, the other is to have a baby…

Unfamiliar is a frank autobiographical performance combining text, movement and found objects to explore received and created narratives, legacy and being queer today. What do we need to do to live the life we always wanted?

Written and performed by Victor Esses and Yorgos Petrou

Movement Director: Rhiannon Faith
