Art should strive to be inclusive – and Safe House invited the public at no cost and with no number limits to view its captivating multi-dimensional display in Hove Park on Saturday evening.

Hundreds of people responded, and the young and old were captivated in silence – only interrupted by bursts of applause.

The house, a metal structure covered in fabric, came to life with incredible animations beamed onto the material sides. The performers hung down from the ceiling, were suspended from runners on the guttering and even danced and acted inside the structure to bring it to life.

It told the story of a house in the 1960s, which developers built to forge communities but seemingly forgot about what really mattered: the people.

For the men, the bricks and mortar was their castle; for children, a fantasy palace; for teenagers, a prison; and for the elderly, somewhere they were confined to.

The stimulating and outstandingly creative way the dancers explored the structure – and the emotional space between a house and a home – to a background of music and speech was innovative and nothing short of incredible.

It’s only a shame it was on for one night only.
