Home fuses puppetry, theater, and multimedia into a visually thrilling and emotionally moving story of a woman's connection to the universe. Alice is an archaeologist, mother, and scholar at the final crossroads of her life. A visit from an intimidating guardian angel (and his strangely familiar young companion) sends Alice on a trip through time and memory, digging through the layers of the past, unearthing her life with her brilliant but troubled husband and their young daughter, and her years studying the people of Pompeii, frozen forever in their last moments on Earth.
Live actors perform alongside full-figure puppets inspired by Japanese bunraku techniques, shadow play, state-of-the-art digital projections, and more to tell Alice's story through the very contents of her home. Photos on the walls become animate; plush toys come to life; clouds of dust form into moving images; furniture travels around the space, opening up to reveal dynamic museum-style dioramas of the past.
