> Romanticising the Mansons: What immersive theatre production Returning Home can teach us about identity, judgement, mental health and our collective search for meaning. […] Berlin-based production Returning Home is one such contemporary piece using an immersive theatre art installation format to explore ideas around community and communal living, power structures, the nature of love and family, and what exactly “home” can mean. […] At the epicentre of Returning Home is a man known to all as Papa, the charismatic epicentre of a strange world he’d created around him. […] The format of the piece forces the audience into making decisions about who and what this family is, and what they are are not ok with in these strange circumstances. […] We ate together, didn’t wash, wore the same rather scratty clothes every day, chosen for us. What first seemed mildly gross very soon became rather nice. We didn’t have to make decisions, the trappings of modern life and the big bad outside world seemed so far away. <<
