“A wholly unique blend of concept, stagecraft, movement, music, and visual storytelling that gives fast-moving form to the ways, large and small, in which a house becomes a home.”
Boston Globe

Where is home? If home is not a place, what is it? In HOME, a house is conjured onstage as if from nothing. Residents move in, move out, get evicted, burn it down, loot it, rent it, remodel it, get married, get divorced, age, die in it, and haunt it–all in a dreamlike blending of space and time. A grand spectacle of stagecraft, this masterpiece from award-winning physical theater artist Geoff Sobelle brings together the mundane and the sublime for a spellbinding exploration of what makes a house a home.

Take a look at Geoff Sobelle’s artist statement as well as the creatives behind the scenes.

Pre-Performance Event: What is “Home?”

March 19, 2020
6:30 PM
UNC’s Gerrard Hall

Before Geoff Sobelle’s theater production HOME takes the stage at Memorial Hall, you’re invited to a stirring conversation on what makes a house a home, featuring Jennifer Player, (President, Habitat for Humanity of Orange County), Gabrielle Berlinger (Assistant Professor, American Studies and Folklore, UNC-Chapel Hill), Penn Tsz Ting Ip (Assistant Professor, Department of Cultural Industry and Management, Shanghai Jiao Tong University), and Stefanie Sobelle (Dramaturg for HOME). Come with an open mind, ready to learn about the physical construction of homes, dwelling rituals, and what “home” means in non-Western cultures.

This event is organized in collaboration with Honors Carolina: Concerts in Context.
