Production Description
Actor-illusionist-inventor and NYTW Usual Suspect Geoff Sobelle’s “virtuosic” New York Times Critics Pick The Object Lesson comes to NYTW for a strictly limited engagement. This immersive theatrical installation turns the theatre into a storage facility of gargantuan proportion where audiences are free to roam and poke through the clutter. Sobelle transforms this makeshift attic into a space of reflection and wonder as he unpacks our relationship to everyday objects: breaking, buying, finding, fixing, giving, losing, winning, trading, selling, stealing, storing, collecting, cluttering, clearing, packing up, passing on, buried under… a world of things. The Object Lesson is a meditation on the stuff we cling to and the crap we leave behind.
