A Billion Nights on Earth - 2017 - New York

A Billion Nights on Earth weaves together the extraordinary and the unexpected into an epic adventure through space and time. A child in search of a lost stuffed animal discovers an unlikely door into another dimension, soon followed by his worried father. The pair--played by real father and son actors Michael and Winslow Fegley--must rely on ingenuity and each other to find their way home through an ever-shifting landscape. Employing Kabuki theater, pop-up storybook design techniques, and installation art aesthetics, Thaddeus Phillips and artist Steven Dufala create a magical theater work for adults and kids alike. Composer Juan Gabriel Turbay's cinematic score animates this work of suspense, wonder and whimsical wisdom.
