Stopped Bridge of Dreams by John Jesurun

  • Location:
    Ellen Stewart Theatre, 66 East 4th Street, New York City, New York, 10002, US

John Jesurun’s Stopped Bridge of Dreams unfolds inside an anonymous globe-circulating jetliner- a modern age pleasure palace operated by a mother and son. Inspired by 17th Century Japanese writer, Saikaku Ihara’s “floating world” stories Stopped Bridge of Dreams features a variable nightly series of revolving playlets and characters. Jesurun weaves text, video, music and live internet feeds to reflect the anxiety of spiritual and sexual dislocation of contemporary life. Featuring Obie-winning actress Black-Eyed Susan.
