This is a Long Form
format, which starts by an in-depth interview of an audience member. Audience is asked who can think of a location that has a strong emotional meaning. One suggestion is accepted and the person who offered the suggestion is taken on-scene for an interview. The goal of the interview is to describe, as precisely as possible, that location. Details are important: where are doors, pictures, cupboards. Any particular memories of what happened in that location, who with. Any secrets about that location (or stashed away in that location).
Based on the input of the audience member, a series of scenes are played, all connected to the information given. Scenes may take place in the location described, or may simply be inspired by what was revealed in the interview.
The word "lugar" (lugares is plural) is Spanish for "place" or "location". The format is attributed to Patti Styles.
