Following their 2013 national tour, Buran Theatre returns to the New York City stage with Magic Bullets, a new hybrid theatre work that entertains a "trip" through health and wellness in modern America.
Utilizing Buran's trademark rambunctious performance aesthetic, the work will address our crave for a quick fix—whether it's anti-depressants, chemotherapy or romantic love. How do we know we are unwell? How can real healing occur? And can we ever return to health? Or is always a trip to some other destination?
Through a series of seemingly unconnected scenes, events, songs and dance, Magic Bullets will build a cacophony of disparate parts into a cohesive performance with live video and music. With a cast of 12 performers, the production will be an overwhelming sensory experience utilizing Buran's rhythmic, immersive performance style seen previously in The House of Fitzcarraldo (2010-2012) and Nightmares: A Demonstration of the Sublime (2013).
