Inspired by Thomas Mann’s novel "The Magic Mountain," Simone Weil’s feminist mysticism, and the lives of hermit saints, this hybrid work is set in a tuberculosis sanatorium on a remote mountainside.

Burnett appears to be heavily influenced by Thomas Mann's ‘The Magic Mountain.’ The question is if you are going to leave out all of the novel's political debate, why bother choosing ‘The Magic Mountain?’ The format of this multimedia performance piece includes dance, mime, music, song, photos and movement. All of it looks and sounds like the happenings of the 1960's and 70's.” Full Review

Don't see it if you want a traditional theater experience. You quite often don't understand what is going on and may not care.
