Philoxenia

The Neighbourhood Company in association with the Bush Theatre present
Sold out

Philoxenia(n); to love strangers, hospitality

“I discover more and more communities the longer I live on this planet”

What do we need in order to belong?
When does a house become a home?
Is home a place or people?

For one night only, The Neighbourhood Company presents Philoxenia, an original devised performance exploring the question: what does home mean to you?

The Neighbourhood Company is the Bush Theatre’s Community Associate Company for 2018/19. They are a company of 21 local people from the age of 10 to 85 who have been working with Lead Artist Molly Taylor over the past 4 months to create an uplifting, intimate and inviting production, to which everyone is welcome.

The Neighbourhood Project has been running at the Bush Theatre since 2016. This is the first time they have performed in the Bush Theatre.

The net proceeds of the ticket price will be donated to Streetlytes organisation. Streetlytes support homeless and vulnerable people in West London by providing them with a safe space, hot food, practical support, friendship, access to free clothes, supplies, and medical care. Every month they support 600 homeless and vulnerable people from their base in Shepherds Bush. The price of your ticket will enable Streetlytes to provide a hot dinner and supplies for two homeless people.
