Call for participants 2022

Calling all East and South East Asian (ESEA) individuals interested in themes of home and identity!

Be part of an innovative, award-winning art and technology project, HOME X. The project is co-produced by Chinese Arts Now (UK) and Don't Believe in Style (Hong Kong) and co-commissioned by Cambridge Junction, Oxford Contemporary Music and York Theatre Royal. Originally commissioned by British Council Hong Kong.

This live/digital hybrid production combines theatre, music, dance, gaming and virtual reality (VR) technology to create an immersive and interactive experience exploring notions of belonging and roots, destruction and renewal. 

Learn more about the work via the About page. View a video of the pilot here.

What?

We are now in the research and development stage for the next iteration of the work and are looking for community participants, particularly from, but not limited to, ESEA heritage backgrounds, to share stories about their lived experiences of HOME X's themes of home, roots and identity. This would take place in an interview format (audio and video, if consented by the participant) which would be incorporated digitally into the work for audience members to experience. Participants can remain anonymous.  

We anticipate that each participant’s time commitment would be as follows:   

  1. One interview session (1 hour)

  2. One sharing session (1 hour 30mins)

  3. One creative development session (3 hours)

  4. (Optional) Additional creative input in the later stages of development and sharing of your experience in a performance panel discussion (February 2023)

We are specifically looking for participants that currently live, or have recent experience of living, in London, Hong Kong, Cambridge, Oxford and York, as the work will tour to these sites in 2023.
