The performance, directed by Yuval Sharon, was staged in the Michigan Theatre building, a structure built in 1926 that was hollowed out in 1976 and transformed into a four-story parking garage with the staging area, upper balcony, projection booth and lobby left intact.

"Bliss" is the first live performance in the theater since its conversion to a parking structure.

MOT stated, "BLISS creates the feeling of an eternal looped moment of repentance and grace, of free-falling in sublime transcendence in this immersive experience."
