Big ideas are rarely presented so intimately…

What is the Gold Coast actually? Is it a geographic border, a cultural identity, a sporting arena, a sunburnt holiday mecca?

It has been said over and over that the Gold Coast is a transient tourism town, but exactly who are the half-a-million locals who call the GC home? In this extraordinary performance experience from acclaimed Berlin-based theatre company Rimini Protokoll, you’re invited to meet them.

Home Visit Australia sees 10 every day locals open their private residences to complete strangers, inviting an intimate audience of just 15 people to become part of a living room performance that interweaves personal stories and the big issues affecting modern day Australians.

You can host Home Visit Australia in your own home, or be a guest in a stranger’s private apartment. Each performance takes place in a different home, and thus becomes part of an ongoing conversation and growing global legacy of Home Visit from across the world.

Home Visit Australia is an entertaining and performative show, Rimini Protokoll brings all the big ideas in a playful way together with the lived reality.

Voting results and group pictures from all of the home visits are anonymously collected at The results can then be compared online as part of an ever growing archive.
