Augustin and Jelka, from just outside Bratislava, are homeless. In Slovakia, 11 % of the population is at risk of poverty, with the threshold for a single person being at risk of poverty being EUR 240 per month. To break out of isolation, the couple is taking part in the Theatre with No Home initiative, a place where people with disabilities and those experiencing homelessness rehearse every week. The weekly rehearsals and regular performances allow participants to polish their social skills by performing in public and working in a team.
