FADSHub & Cafe is completely taken over by Artangel and transformed into an exciting and thought provoking project.

Have Your Circumstances Changed? is a is funny, dark and problematic set of theatrical duets between an ageing man and a growing boy. Developed through collaboration led by Lu Kemp with older men in Islington, these performances will confront passers-by with the intimate routine of an older man’s daily life. The choreography of their everyday actions questions the quality and responsibility of care within contemporary society.

Taking place in three domestic settings, kitchen, living room and bathroom, Have Your Circumstances Changed? raises broader questions about human vulnerability as more of us live longer and need to adapt to the challenges of daily life – at a time when we are at our least adaptable. And who has the responsibility of care in this extending period of life?

Have Your Circumstances Changed? is a project developed by Artangel in partnership with Age UK Islington, St Luke’s Community Centre, Central Cookery School, and Vital Arts. Supported by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, co-produced by Islington Council for the Word Festival.
