War on Want is excited to be supporting this innovative and powerful project, connecting artists and audiences for live simultaneous performances in Gaza and London.

At Home in Gaza and London is a Station House Opera performance project bringing people together across great political, economic and physical divides.

Using a mix of live-streaming from different locations, artists occupy each other’s homes, streets and other social spaces to share their everyday lives.  At times they even dissolve into each other or become ghostly protagonists in the drama. 

The project opens a new way for artists to engage with each other across the world, and invites audiences to meet and get involved, presenting a fresh and personal response to Gaza and its isolation. During a four week workshop, from 17 October to 13 November 2016, sixteen artists from a variety of disciplines, including theatre, film, visual arts and photography, will develop their stories into a collaborative, site specific theatre piece - culminating in a live performance with audiences in Gaza and London sharing the event.
