When: 02 Sep 2011 to 04 Sep 2011

Where: Darling

More information:

This is the time of year when residents of Darling open up their homes to host professional performances by local and international artists.

Music, drama, mime, comedy and cabaret are performed in the lounges or “voorkamers” (literally: front rooms) of 21 Darling homes throughout the village.

Darling taxi drivers take festival visitors from home to home on a number of set routes – each route features three homes and three performances. The beauty of this format is the surprise element: Visitors don’t know beforehand which performances they will see on their route, nor which theatre homes they will visit.

Each venue accommodates only a maximum of 25 people, so intimacy is guaranteed. So too is the genuine hospitality of the homeowners.
