A visually stunning tale of love and disenchantment in modern-day Shanghai

Performing Arts

Next Wave Festival 2013: The Blue Dragon

BAM Harvey Theater (651 Fulton Street, Brooklyn, New York, NY) Map it $25

Robert Lepage—a master craftsman of breathtaking cinematic theater—returns to BAM with a visually stunning tale of love and disenchantment in modern-day Shanghai. A follow-up to his 1985 epic The Dragons’ Trilogy, The Blue Dragon revisits Pierre (played by Lepage), an expat art curator and former painter navigating a love triangle and a midlife crisis. A tiered set, inspired by the vivid colors and composition of graphic novels, shifts ingeniously from dank apartment to karaoke bar to billboard-strewn cityscape, as a bittersweet vision of a country seduced by modernity unfolds.
