AWESOME FESTIVAL 2022 | We Live Here | 4 Stars

Review | Laura Money

We Live Here is a stripped back and beautiful homage to the people of Hummingbird House – a youth hospice that provides a comforting and warm home for families undergoing medical treatment. Presented by Flipside Circus and Circus WA, the show is a gorgeous representation of courage and love.

Featuring voiceovers and a thrumming soundtrack, We Live Here sees the physicality of Hummingbird House. From joyful play to the breakdown of time in a day, each sequence reflects the memoirs of its inhabitants – past and present. There is a stunning sequence where a mother outlines her day, physically holding up every other member to f the troupe with grace and strength. There’s laughter and pure goofiness in a touching date sequence and synchronised swimming.

Each vignette has a depth to it, the acrobatics are impressive but so is the story being told. We Live Here is a must-see this Awesome Festival.

We Live Here is on at STCWA until Friday 30th September 2022

The Fourth Wall acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land we engage in storytelling on – the Wadjhuk people of the Noongar nation. We pay respects to their elders past, present, and emerging.

Keep up with The Fourth Wall on Facebook and @fourth_wall_media on Instagram to see what we’re up to in 2022.
