Start the engine, turn off your sound and follow the route.
We take you on the road trip.
We take you on a journey.
Right in the middle of the city, and yet you will never get there.
Three houses of people who are waiting.
People who live in a different place than you.
They imagined what you would look like.
How you would laugh.
Whether you feel welcome.
A drive through performance, with your car or bike along three residential locations of different care institutions in Arnhem, with a storytelling podcast ON THE ROAD.
At every location you see a scene and on the road you’re listening to a podcast. Travel along all kinds of stories of people during the corona crisis. About suddenly having to live in isolation, about all the question we had, about missing friends and family.
