Nailhouse

Performed & Created by Grace Gibson & Tora Hsu


To remove a nail: Ram the claw of your hammer into the nail shank and rock it sideways using the claw edge. Repeat until you pry out the nail. Repeat until you pry out the nail. Repeat until. This is a house; this is not our home. 

Nailhouse is a devised performance inspired by the true story of a couple who refuse to leave their home even after it becomes the centre piece of a motorway. This duet explores the relationship between two people in a place that we might call home.
