Gemeente Leeuwarden

A multilingual and musical sitcom about living in different times.

A sitcom about living

Everyone longs for security; to a place of your own that you can call home. At the same time, we also need togetherness, community, neighbors we greet. The two are sometimes at odds with each other. How do we want to live and above all: live together? This is what the location performance Romte.

In this comedic and critical sitcom you travel through time with four characters. With them you (re)experience the housing shortage in the 1950s, the exuberant housing ideas of the 1970s and individualization in the 1990s. To eventually end up in the present, where a new housing crisis presents itself. Do the four find the housing of tomorrow?
