Theater artist Geoff Sobelle returns to BAM with the New York premiere of HOME, a large-scale performance work that explores the relationship between “house” and “home.” On stage, a house appears from nothing, constructed quickly as though in time-lapse. Residents move in, move out, get evicted, burn it down, loot it, rent it, remodel it, get married and divorced in it, grow up in it, die in it, haunt it. All the while, they live among traces of residents present, past, and future. Themes of gentrification and migration are rendered in the choreography of ordinary people moving through a structure, propelled by a variety of social, political, and aesthetic forces. Created in collaboration with performers Sophie Bortolussi, Jennifer Kidwell, Justin Rose, Ching Valdez and Josh Crouch, HOME combines dance, illusion, live music, home-spun engineering, and inventive audience interaction to compose a work that asks, where is home? And if it isn’t a place, what is home?
