Full House

Category: Show Related artist: El├ęctrico 28

Full House is a modern fable about the living together in urban housing situations. It is performed in a cross-culturally understandable way and addresses a universal topic for an audience of all ages. As a strategy that supports the overcoming of cultural and other differences, Full House is thought to be set up in backyards of apartment blocks, kindergartens, schools and other spaces where intense everyday life might cause frictions or where communication and mutual understanding has become difficult.

Without words but through physical theatre and live music, Full House tells the story of the neighbours Dog, Horse and Koala. Different as they are, living together is not easy for them. Most of the time, they are very busy with themselves and do not even realize the needs of the other. Sometimes an outburst of conflict is just lurking around the corner. A new and unexpected situation arises when the tiger arrives and invites the others to his house-warming party.

Full House was created based on the request of the ARGE do.it.to.do.do to support interpersonal communication in crowded urban housing situations. Based on this need and on research on real life in such housing situations, El├ęctrico 28 has created a mobile theatre piece that deals with certain issues of everyday life with humor as a major tool in freeing them from taboos.
