A Young Vic Taking Part film in partnership with Thames Reach

Minute by minute, hour by hour and day to day they live their lives. 
Caught up in their own separate bubbles of their existence.
Until one day everything grinds to a halt.
Almost as if by magic...

Welcome to the world as you haven’t seen it but ought to know it... Welcome to the wonderful and weird world of Home(body)

This heart-warming, and at times chaotic, tale was written by Jasmine Lee-Jones (seven methods of killing kylie jenner, Curious…) for a group of participants from Thames Reach, a charity supporting people facing homelessness through prevention, intervention and recovery. Directed by Milli Bhatia (seven methods of killing kylie jenner, Dismantle This Room), the film’s themes are inspired by its extraordinary cast – including their love of food! 

Home(body) was produced to mark the conclusion of Taking Part’s TWENTY TWENTY project, a year-long collaboration with three extraordinary community organisations working in Lambeth and Southwark, launched to foster in-depth creative relationships with local people.

This film contains some strong language.
