Distant Observer: Tokyo/New York Correspondence is a collaboration between Japanese playwright-director Takeshi Kawamura and American playwright-director John Jesurun. The project is conceived as a play written and directed in collaborative partnership by both artists. Written in corresponding chapters by each playwright, it combines two established artists of the same generation, both with distinct voices and significant work, in a deep creative conversation across cultures.
Gob Squad, Berlin's outlandish theater renegades, set their sights on Leo Tolstoy's opus War and Peace, only to discover that neither war nor peace is coming without a fight. The setting is a literary salon, where audience members join the cast in a live theater-video performance in which art and daily life, history and the present, reality and fiction blur. In this American premiere, a never-ending parade of characters dance, dine, and duel while performers prepare for scenes as if going into battle, all in order to reframe Tolstoy's central inquiry: Can we live a moral life in an imperfect world?
A love tangle. A lonely girl. Lost god. One angry mother.
Love Trade tests the sex games Demeter passes on to her daughter Persephone, who wanders away from the Upper World and meets the exotic Shiva. All three undergo the death of fake dreams and false longings as they descend into the Depths, emerging transformed.
Enter The Portal and follow Dante through epic deserts and alpine mountains as he seeks the beautiful and mysterious Beatrice while being pursued by his inner demons. Driven by epic rock music that pulses with tribal and electronic beats, The Portal is part concert, part movie, and part performance. It not only entertains but also immerses the audience in a journey of transcendence and empowerment.
In 1949, Dr. Jacob Bronowski installs a secret alarmed room in his house. Fifty years later, his grandson discovers his secrets, unearthing echoes from across six million years of human history, told from the perspective of a century in which every year is a revolutionary year. Secret Life of Humans is inspired by Yuval Harari's international bestseller, Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind.
The Signature Project is multi-sensory theatrical experience. Its core is a huge 76 ft x 36 ft mural layered with hidden secrets. For the past 22 years a live performance has toured the United States bringing the mural to life, with artist Patrick Dunning ingeniously weaving stories and images in the great tradition of Irish artists. Now, this play with music and dance comes to New York for its Off-Broadway premiere. A unique, exhilarating tapestry blending art and technology, The Signature Project offers the opportunity for the audience to join over 300,000 people whose signatures already comprise the fabric of this monumental art work. The painting and the play are constantly changing and evolving as people contribute their own signature and story to the larger art work, adding perspectives and ideas which make the world so special and wonderful, beyond imagination. Creator, Patrick Dunning is from Dublin, Ireland and now lives in Portland, Oregon.
