A cave person stubs their toe on a Monday, a baby survives a revolution, a cat shits in the bathroom sink in Collingwood, and a woman from the other side of the world cleans it up.

Meanwhile, you are at your kitchen table in the middle of a pandemic, peering through the window into other people’s well-lit houses.

Performed live online each night, ‘Us’ shows home-life as it is.

The work captures micro interactions between parents and their children, the beautiful, frustrating, messy, ridiculous, loving moments that usually go unseen, kept secret in the private realm and left out of grand narratives. ‘Us’ is an invitation into the living room of a family that’s not yours and a wild meandering tale of how you are connected to them.
