~ Program Description ~
“Physical theater artist Geoff Sobelle (The Object Lesson, 2014 Next Wave) leads an ensemble of dancers and designers in a feat of impossible carpentry: raising a house onstage and making a home within it. Residents tumble through kitchens, beds, and baths in a spontaneous choreography of everyday life, as they move in, move out, clean up, burn down, sweep under, paint over, fence off, and move on. At once an enchanting experiment in collectivity and an affecting meditation on dwelling, HOME takes stock of all the stubborn forces that make a house a home.”
Karen Jenson and I arrived at the Peter Jay Sharp building at BAM to meet and interview Geoff Sobelle. Taking the elevator to the ‘Penthouse’ and walking the hallways decorated with posters from BAM’s successful shows from the past was sublime.
The penthouse studio was beautiful and illuminated with gorgeous daylight streaming in from the windows on one side. Geoff was seated at a long table and we proceeded to set up a couple of chairs in the middle of the room.
