We are delighted that our associate artists Nearly There Yet will begin their 2019 tour of Home Sweet Home - a brand new solo show exploring what it means to belong - at the Creation Space this Feburary
Home Sweet Home is the story of a part-Iranian, part Welsh, part who cares, part everybody, Londoner who doesn't fit in. Or at least that's how he feels.
Using acrobatic physicality, stand-up and plenty of true-to-life anecdotes, Kaveh Rahnama re-imagines the BNP in the 80s, broken eggs, water fights, class struggles, biting, Brexit, relationships, fatherhood and, of course, juggling in the rain, in this one-man exploration of belonging. With a classic soundtrack of feel-good 80s and 90s pop hits, this partly autobiographical show is a funny and hugely entertaining look at what it means to be British when one, or both, of your parents isn't.
Suitable for ages 14+
"I like hearing about addiction, otherness and class anger, it resonated with my story and I have never seen my story in theatre"
"Amazing. Rich and visceral"
