Her Abode

Mischief La-Bas

Family, Installation, Theatre

An animated and physically interactive exploration of women’s stories all wrapped up in one life. Like Virginia Woolf’s ‘Orlando’, Lillian’s life has spanned centuries, talents and continents. Inspired by one woman, it will be the true stories of many.

Her Abode

Snippets of these stories and inventions will be unearthed within a horsebox, an interactive, animated, pop-up home. The public will be invited in to pull, push, watch, listen and discover artworks, artefacts and animations which give clues to the achievements and identity of the missing inhabitant.
