Jim Findlay, a PS122 artist whose performed on our stages more times than we can count, closes up shop this weekend at his newest installation work Dream of the Red Chamber, a performance for a sleeping audience presented by The Time Square Arts in production with 3-Legged Dog and Collapsable Giraffe. If you haven’t experienced it yet, we urge you to run to this absolutely FREE performance event.
Dream of the Red Chamber is created to be a dream play. The audience is invited to experience and partake in the work meanwhile they fall in and out of sleep. The set creates an inviting environment that facilitates sleep, while the live performance inspired by Cao Xueqin’s 18th century Chinese novel “Dream of the Red Chamber” — an epic love story between a stone and a flower – is performed, gently trying to shape the audience’s dreams
If you’re around Times Square this weekend stop by, hop in, & take a nap.
