“Sobelle’s work is astonishing.”
— SF Gate
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.

Geoff Sobelle is a theatre artist dedicated to the “sublime ridiculous.” He creates original actor-driven, design-focused performance works that point out the absurdities of living in our present moment. Using illusion, movement and out-dated mechanics, he creates surreal, poetic pieces that look for humanity where you least expect it and find grace where no one is looking.
