Black Moon Theatre Company presents a new multi-disciplinary show inspired by 'The Tibetan Book of the Dead.' More…
'Bliss' chronicles the journey of consciousness during the interval between death and rebirth (Bardo). Director René Migliaccio’s production is a visual and poetic dance/theater odyssey within the mind of an individual striving to awaken to a higher consciousness. The show features an actor living the text of the Bardo alongside a Butoh dancer manifesting as his supra consciousness on the path to liberation. An original score fuses ambient music and accents of sounds and voices, and projections immerse the audience in the symbolic dimension of dreams.
See it if You're familiar with The Tibetan Book of the Dead. It's an interesting interpretation (a little to literate for my taste but A for effort).
Don't see it if youre not a fan of performance art. Especially if you don't have any previous knowledge of the Tibetan Book of the Dead.
See it if You'd like to see meditation done exquisitly. If you'd like to see what The Tibetan Book of the Dead is all about. Beautifully staged.
Don't see it if You're not interested in meditation or spirituality. Or uncomfortable with nudity. This is not your standard boy meets girl bliss.
See it if if you are interested in the Tibetan Book of Dying.. how the soul leaves and how it reincarnates, very thought provoking piece
Don't see it if If you aren't interested in issues around dying. Performance art with only one individual speaking
See it if you're into meditative, philosophical, text-heavy experimental performance
Don't see it if you need clear character-driven linear narrative.
See it if You are interested in creative living (and dying), Buddhism, performance art, different and intelligent theatre.
Don't see it if You're offended by nudity, afraid to deal with the subject of death (you should get over this), looking for meaningless light entertainment
