A breathtaking and tender spectacle of illusion, choreography and storytelling that explores the everyday drama of what makes a house a home.
You are cordially invited to a magical house party on the grandest scale. HOME builds an entire house before your very eyes, and then explores how it turns into a home. With fixtures, fittings, and finally inhabitants. And even – maybe – a little help from you.
Actor, creator, magician and illusionist Geoff Sobelle won enormous praise for previous shows Flesh and Blood and Fish and Fowl in 2010, and the multi-award-winning The Object Lesson in 2014.
His new show, co-commissioned by the International Festival, is his most dazzling to date, as he throws open the doors and invites you to his party. HOME is a moving meditation on the relentless passage of time, and a breathtaking spectacle of illusion, choreography, inexplicable construction and live documentary.
As a whole house miraculously materialises around him, Sobelle explores how a home shapes the lives of those within it – from the humdrum rituals of showering, cooking and doing the washing, to the momentous events of births, deaths, even crazy parties.
With live troubadour tunes from Elvis Perkins and an ever-expanding crowd of residents past and future, HOME reveals how we’re haunted by previous inhabitants of our homes, and how we in turn will haunt those who come after us.
Witty and wise, hearty and hilarious, lively and life-affirming, HOME is both experimental and thrillingly immediate, full of wonder and excess. It captures all the drama and emotion of our everyday lives.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Edinburgh International Festival: HOME are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
