What makes a house a home?

A house party where the whole audience is invited –award-winning absurdist Geoff Sobelle’s visual spectacle is a magical meditation on the meaning of home.

On an empty stage, a house rises before your eyes. People move in, move out. They eat, sleep, love, argue, throw a party – as though everyone who had ever lived in the house were there together, fighting for the fridge. Haunting one habitat, their domestic dance is an overlapping map of successive generations.

As the rituals, relationships and drama of everyday lives play out in a two-storey home, audience members join the party, building their own memories inside this transitory stage dwelling.

Multi-award-winning theatre-maker and absurdist Geoff Sobelle created HOME after discovering layer upon layer of kitchen floor, each laid by former residents of his 100-year-old Philadelphia house. What makes a house a home, he wondered?

With a cast of seven, including live original songs from Elvis Perkins, this is a moving and miraculous visual poem about the stuff of life.
