Black Moon Theatre Company presents BLISS based on the Tibetan Book of the Dead with performances on September 8-25, 2016, at 7pm with 3pm matinees on Saturdays and Sundays at The Flea Theater, 41 White Street New York, NY 10013. Tickets are $20-$30 and can be found at https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pr/961264. Performances: Tuesdays-Sundays at 7pm, Saturday and Sundays at 3pm (no 3pm performance on 9/11).
BLISS follows the journey of consciousness after death, during the interval between death and rebirth (bardo), and serves as an allegorical guide for the living. In this new multi-disciplinary production, Artistic Director René Migliaccio’s staging is a visual and poetic dance/theatre odyssey within the mind of an individual striving to awaken to a Higher Consciousness. The journey is theatrically of double nature: the actor living the text of the Bardo and a Butoh dancer manifesting as his supra consciousness on the path of liberation. Original music features a fusion of ambient and accents of sounds and voices from the world, journeying on a wide spectrum from dark to ethereal moods. Projections create the pictorial environment for the journeyer on his path to liberation, immersing the audience in the symbolic dimension of dreams.
