“Home”: University Musical Society.
Apr. 22 & 23. Philadelphia-based physical theater artist Geoff Sobelle, a self-avowed devotee of the “sublime ridiculous,” leads an ensemble of dancers and designers in a feat of theatrical carpentry: raising a house onstage and making within it a home that’s layered with inhabitants who remain largely unaware of each other. Directed by Obie-winner Lee Sunday Evans and featuring original music by folk-rock singer-songwriter Elvis Perkins, this production keeps “pulling apparitions out of air,” according to the New York Times, as it elicits “a familiar sense of being haunted.” 8 p.m. Power Center. Mask and proof of vaccination required. $30–$61 (students $12–$20) in advance only at ums.org/performance/home or 764–2538.
