MAKE/SHIFT

THE SHOW

The door opens, the door closes. Ross comes home from his tedious office job just as Bibi leaves for another night behind the bar. This is what being twenty-something in 2019 is like: sharing a flat, a pessimistic outlook on the future, and a life with your best friend, but barely seeing each other. It isn’t the dream. It is barely even enough, but it’s what they have. A flat that is a home, a future that is yet to be decided, and a life that’s worth living. When their precarious balance is disturbed, their small family has to prove its worth.

This spoken word theatre show deals with found family and the socio-economic struggles of a generation that was promised the universe, but was gifted a broken world.
