House Home at Hive 3

Hive was Vancouver’s wildly successful indie theatre installation event where audiences are encouraged to move from one site-specific show to the next over the course of the evening. I conceived and directed a show in each of the three Hives. House Home, part of Hive 3, is a multi-media exploration of domestic ennui,  a domestic love story examining the fabric of relationships Vis-a-vis the buildings we live in.

Critical Response

Pi Theatre accomplishes something incredible, crafting one of the rawest, most compellingly emotional pieces of theatre to grace any Vancouver stage this year.

—Andrea Warner, Westender

Pi Theatre’s House Home is a terrific mix of movement, music and a short story
both sweet and sad.

—Peter Birnie, Vancouver Sun

In this dark, musical look at marriage in its not-so-early stages, a husband and wife perform a dance of dissatisfaction, up and down stairs, through windows, and in bathroom and tool-shed sanctuaries…by the end of this show, they will each bare all in different ways.

—Marsha Lederman, The Globe and Mail

An inventive set design, great performances, and nuanced yet universal content add up to a great show.
