Welcome Home//Home Edition
SHOW POSTPONED DUE TO PRECAUTIONS SURROUNDING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC
Red Eye Theater brings a performance by Co-Artistic Director Theo Langason to a series of homes around the Twin Cities. In Welcome Home//Home Edition, Langason blends improvisation, conversation, poetry, and song to explore the concept of home. Is home a place we live, or a place that lives in us? Is home fixed or fluid? Is it born, built, or baked? What does it feel like when we long for it, and what happens when we leave it? Langason, a theater maker and musician, collaborates with portrait painter and photographer Xena Goldman to build evocative images of how we imagine and remember home in real time, and how these spaces shape us.
After developing the piece in Red Eye’s 2019 New Works 4 Weeks Festival, Langason migrates the performance out of the theater and back to its source, nurturing genuine exchanges in domestic environments. Each performance incorporates the home, the host, and the meeting of friends and strangers to create a unique and intimate experience. The work is a key to Red Eye’s 2020 season, which experiments with ways of gathering in temporary spaces while the organization prepares to build its next long-term home.
