The stuff that defines us.

Do you have what you need? Do you need what you have?

With boxes stacked to the ceiling, actor-illusionist-inventor Geoff Sobelle unpacks our relationship to everyday objects in this hilarious and heartbreaking solo performance/junk-pile-installation.

Sobelle’s expedition into a miscellany of memory leads him to
break, bury, fix, steal, store, chop, drop and toss through trash and treasure alike. You are encouraged to roam the giant storage facility, browsing, poking and playing in this immaculately detailed world, where intimate theatre and art installation combine for one breathtaking and unforgettable experience.

The Object Lesson is a whimsical, one-of-a-kind meditation on the stuff we cling to and what we choose to leave behind.
