The autumn has finally come during this long year of pandemic. A young woman returns to her hometown because she can no longer afford to pay her rent in the big city. An agency sends thick envelopes to evaluate how well the population can weather the crisis. And, on the internet, a community emerges that celebrates the voluntary decision to go without as a lifestyle alternative to the desire for the easing of restrictions.
Together with HAU Hebbel am Ufer, FFT Düsseldorf and Hellerau in Dresden, machina eX develops its second living room game. In “Homecoming”, the audience members all stay at home. From there, they set out to prominent as well as remote parts of the internet to explore a story over the course of live performances and chats that extends far beyond their own four walls.
In order to play, a computer with access to the internet, a telephone and a postbox are required.
