WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

ArtsEmerson the World on Stage Presents: American Utopias Controversial monologist Mike Daisey in his newest work paints a distinctly American vision of utopia--how we create public spaces in which we come together to act out our dreams of a better world. Daisey takes us all over the map to pursue the story: from Disney World and its nostalgic theme park perfection, to the drug-fueled anarchic excesses of Burning Man, to Zuccotti Park, where in the unlikeliest place the Occupy movement was born. Gun-play, giant glittery dildos, raving animatronic presidents and brutal police actions come together to paint the stark landscape of our new American dream.
