Do you know where you’ll sleep tonight? And what the weather will be like then? How many times a week do you eat a warm meal? When was the last time you had a shower? Have you ever asked strangers to give you money? How do you see yourself in half a year?
Every day, around two to three people lose their homes in Hungary. Only with huge support, outstanding will, and big luck can help to get out of this situation. The cooperation of Lifeboat Unit and STEREO AKT is an interactive theatrical board game, where we find ourselves standing in homeless people’s shoes. We have to live and survive half a year without any place to live.
The act is played by four people: two actors, a homeless activist and a social worker, who – as an expert – helps us to get to know this truly unknown world.
The play is for adults and high school children as well, and is a status report about our society, which on one hand highlights the causes of personal aspects of homelessness, and questions all the stereotypes that states “you are worth as much as you earn” and “if you are poor, blame yourself”.
