A magical house party of the greatest proportion.
On an empty stage, a house is conjured from thin air. Residents move in, move out, clean up, burn down, sweep under, paint over, fence off and move on — and all the while, they live among the traces of residents present, past and future. Geoff Sobelle’s HOME is a house party of the greatest proportion, telling the story of a house, and showing what it means to create 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.
"Sobelle's work is astonishing."

"Geoff Sobelle is a true alchemist. He weaves a rich golden glow over each performance, with just the raw materials of illusion, invention, romance and whimsy."
