INTERNATIONAL USA

Geoff Sobelle is obsessed with the burlesque, the poetics of the absurd and visual theatre. The American actor and illusionist presents a spectacular large-scale work inviting us into his home.

People from different generations, origins, appearance, cultures and eras come to live on the stage before us and then vanish; disappearing in a flash, making room for other men and women. These include actors and actresses, but also members of the audience that play a role in the tale of this building which has witnessed a thousand lives.

Midway between comedy and poetry, Home combines theatre, dance, illusion and live music to show how a house shapes the lives of those who live in it. All without saying a single word. The American artist is a huge admirer of Jacques Tati, Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton and knows that the colours of souls can be expressed through body language. This is how he surprises, moves and delights us, how he brings humour and intelligence to this touching meditation on time that inexorably passes by.
