Young and old inhabitants of Hillbrow, Johannesburg work together on a performance and a podcast series that tell their own stories about what 'home' means to them.

In one of Johannesburg’s poor neighborhoods, Hillbrow, Danish and South African theatre professionals and radio producers collaborate with young and old people about a performance that deal with the participants’ notion of home. What does it mean to have a home? To have a family? To be from Hillbrow?

The performance is set to play at Hillbrow Theatre in the Spring of 2017, that will also feature podcasts produced by the participants and Hillbrow Radio.
