What and Where is HOME?

A magical, large-scale spectacle built from the ground up, HOME combines illusion, live music, home-spun engineering and an inventive use of audience interaction to compose an experience that asks, where is home? If it is not a place, what is home? HOME explores — and explodes — the relationship between “house” and “home,” and it invites audiences to think twice about the physical and emotional bonds that connect us.

We’re thinking a lot about those ideas of houses and homes in the run up to this show (SEP 27 – OCT 1), and below you’ll find famous quotes about ‘home,’ and a playlist of songs about the concept too!

“Love begins at home, and it is not how much we do… but how much love we put in that action.”
-Mother Teresa

“The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned.”
-Maya Angelou

“If you go anywhere, even paradise, you will miss your home.”
-Malala Yousafzai

“There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort.”
-Jane Austen

“The kitchen is the heart of every home, for the most part. It evokes memories of your family history.”
