What makes a house a home? Multi-award-winning theatre artist Geoff Sobelle casts his penetrating gaze over our favourite four walls in his new theatre work, co-commissioned by the New Zealand Festival.

Home is a large-scale collaborative performance that explores and explodes the relationship between a “house” and this thing we call “home". On stage, a house appears. You watch it fill room by room as generations of inhabitants move in, grow up, get old, argue, do laundry, fall in love, work and party. From solitude to riotous party, these walls contain the stuff of life.

Actor-illusionist-inventor Sobelle is known for his virtuosic works of visual theatre. Here a cast of seven actors and the live music of American folk-rock artist Elvis Perkins invite us into the rituals and relationships that create a home. This joyous meditation on our domestic selves gives you a prime spot at the family dinner table – it’s an interactive art installation with a twist.
