Tim “Rosso” Ross and Kit Warhurst are back with Man about the House II. It’s fun, irreverent, and very entertaining.
Bringing together music, comedy, history, Tim brings to life stories of his youth, fatherhood, and yep, a smattering of architecture.
Taking over the living rooms of some of Australia’s most iconic modernist houses, Man About The House II is taking architecture from appreciation to experience.
The show strikes just the right balance between laughs and anecdotes of places they’ve performed, breathing new life into modernism.
You don’t have to be an architect to appreciate the show though. Don’t have to know much about it at all really. Tim loves modernism and you can’t help but be a bit giddy for it yourself by the end.
It’s the way he speaks, like he is telling the story to a bunch of friends at the pub. You feel like you were there. His observations of life growing up in Australia and now raising a family are spot on. It’s just the right amount of nostalgia. You’ll laugh at the details you’d forgotten from your childhood and those still familiar today.
It was our first time to visit the Rose Seidler House and it is a wonder even now. The ultimate Australian modernist design, it is no surprise that it caused such a stir in the day. Sitting in that iconic living room, listening to tunes and jokes was a treat. It was stuck in my mind that Harry built this house for his Mum, to make her feel at home and proud. Being there sharing in some revelry was like being a welcome guest.
