This Might Feel Like Home

Text I wrote for the Whispers Project on the side of Little Mountain Gallery forms the title for a verbatim theatre project, which runs November 14-16, 2013 at Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House in Vancouver, Canada:

Run: November 14, 15 at 8p.m., November 16 at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. Star Star Theatre is pleased to present the premiere of a new play titled This Might Feel Like Home, curated by Mika Laulainen and Simone Brodie. This community engaged verbatim theatre project has been funded by the Neighbourhood Small Grants Program and will be playing at the Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House, 800 E Broadway. Admission is by Donation. What makes a place a home? Is it art on the walls, your coffee pot, the smell of your old books? Coming home to a specific person or your two rescue cats? This Might Feel Like Home celebrates the Mount Pleasant community using real words from local residents. As diverse as we are, we all have something in common, something that truly makes Vancouver special…..We all choose to make this place our home.

Verbatim theatre, or documentary theatre, uses the exact words of interviewed individuals to create a theatre piece that is not only about a certain group of people, but also by that same group. This Might Feel Like Home explores the ideas of home, community, and housing in Mount Pleasant through the stories of six very different people who share our community with us.

Directed by Simone Brodie, This Might Feel Like Home features the talents of numerous emerging actors who make Mount Pleasant their home, including Erika Babins, Randi Edmundson, Mika Laulainen, Jonathan Mason, and Xavier de Salaberry. This Might Feel Like Home will run from November 14th to 16th at 8 p.m. with a matinee on November 16th at 2 p.m. at the Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House, 800 E Broadway. For more information please contact Mika Laulainen.

This might feel like home. 195 East 26th Avenue, Vancouver, Canada.

I have contributed text to another Whispers Project mural, which reads: “If only the colors were a little different, this might feel like home.” This Whisper can be seen alongside other mural and graffiti art upon the sides of Little Mountain Gallery in Vancouver, Canada.

Whispers Project is a series of typographic murals located around Vancouver, and is coordinated by Eli Horn and Jordan Bent in collaboration with local writers.
