Building a complete house on stage

"Mind-boggling humorous magic is dispensed throughout" Phindie.com

Welcome to a magical house party on an epic scale. On an empty stage, American actor and illusionist Geoff Sobelle builds an entire house before our eyes. As it miraculously takes shape around him and with residents moving in, getting settled, cooking, showering, celebrating births and moving on, we see how lives are changed by environment, by who has gone before us, and what transforms a house into a home. Witty and insightful, filled with live music and homespun engineering, HOME is a breathtaking, life-affirming spectacle about our relationship with living spaces and the relentless passage of time.

Geoff Sobelle’s outrageous imagination has produced a string of exceptional visual theatre shows including Flesh and Blood and Fish and Fowl and the multi-award winning The Object Lesson that have enthralled audiences in London, Sydney and New York. Co-commissioned by several world-leading festivals including Edinburgh, HOME comes to Hong Kong trailing rapturous reviews. A spellbinding theatre event unlike anything you’ve seen before.
