In a chaotic business world, do we know the difference between astrophysics and Buddha? Can it all be solved with yoga? Featuring eight characters at various points of their lives, Village, My Home questions how we choose New York City and what are the comforts that draw us back home. We meet the Old Woman, a matriarch who loves to paint and remembers the horrors of greater storms. We get a glimpse of out-of-towners and travelers from other boroughs, willing to take the City. Just when you yearn for your fax machine, we meet a new school, techno-tribal Computer Geek who threatens to interrupt the very subways that connect us everyday.

With theatrical movement and state-of-the-art sound design, Village, My Home promises to warm the heart and calm the most unsettling times. More information can be found at: https://www.facebook.com/VillageMyHome/
