Auckland's Hobson Street Theatre Company, whose actors have all experienced homelessness, is representing New Zealand at an international Arts Festival held every three years in Rotterdam.

The company's latest production Let Me Tell You About Auckland premiered this weekend and involved taking the audience on a guided walk around a city.

The Company is working with a Rotterdam group that also involves homeless performers to create a new site-specific work for the International Community Arts Festival.

The new work will be based on Let Me Tell You About Auckland that was written by Anders Falstie-Jensen. Lynn Freeman talks to Anders and cast member Joeli Thacker.

The Hobson Street Theatre company head to Rotterdam later this month for the International Community Arts Festival.
