House of Me connects with slices of everyone’s life—laughs and surprises, risks and sorrows, routines and adventures. As a poetic storyteller, Christian takes us on a journey in the House of Me through the inner and outer rooms of his life. From his Romanian roots to his America dreams, Christian dialogs and physically dissolves back and forth between his inner spiritual self and his aging mother with her popping eyes, humped spine, and protruding middle. Asylum Theatre’s space is not only befitting for the staging of the rooms but also for the spiritual and psychological performance shifts developed in the characters. The multi-media integration of images, music, sound, and lighting give the piece its three-dimensionality.

My overall impression
Skillfully written and effectively performed, House of Me by Christian Geo is a valuable and insightful work on life at its core.
