Do you have what you need? Do you need what you have? With boxes stacked to the ceiling, award-winning actor-illusionist-inventor Geoff Sobelle unpacks our relationship to everyday objects – a hilarious, heartbreaking solo performance installation. You encounter a massive, meaningful, meaningless pile of junk that describes in debris your tiny human history. Breaking, buying, finding, fixing, giving, losing, winning, trading, selling, stealing, storing, collecting, cluttering, clearing, packing up, passing on, buried under…a world of things. A meditation on the stuff we cling to and the crap we leave behind.
