The story of HOME is the lifecycle of a house. And the many dreams of home cast upon it.

On stage, a house appears. It goes up with the speed of time-lapse photography. 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—and all the while, they leave and live among traces of residents present, past, and future. This large-scale performance mixes illusion, choreography, live music, construction, homespun engineering, and live documentary to create the messiness of life that transforms a house into a home.

From the creator of The Object Lesson is a performance both virtuosic in its theatricality yet startlingly down-to-earth in the lifelike world it creates around its audience. HOME is a glorious meditation on the transitory nature of dwelling, the constraints of time and money, the impossible structural demands of a house, the absurdity—and at times the impossibility—of making a home.
