Open House is not a show. It’s an invitation.
Chris Goode & Company launched its Open House format in 2011. The way it works is simple. A core group of CG&Co artists walks into a theatre on a Monday morning, to start a process from scratch – with nothing but themselves and maybe a few unformed ideas to jump off from.
During the course of the week, they work together with whoever wants to join in, to make a performance that the assembled company shares with an audience on the Friday evening.
With the rise of more people living a single existence, this piece explores where the pressure comes from to cohabit/marry. Is it society? Ourselves? Or is it centered on our need to prove our emotional independence?
