Jim Findlay: Dream of the Red Chamber, a performance for a sleeping audience
When else can you experience an art installation that encourages its audience to sleep…in Times Square of all places. Times Square Arts has brought Jim Findlay’s latest piece, Dream of the Red Chamber, a performance for a sleeping audience to the city that never sleeps, in the lower level of the historic Brill Building in touristic Times Square. The piece invites audiences to take an immersive journey through Cao Xueqin’s 18th Century Chinese novel, either from a provided bed or chair. Performers, video and sound will envelop guests throughout the room for a truly dreamy experience. It is open nightly from 5pm to 12 am, with one special overnight performance left on May 17th that ends at 5 am, just in time to see the sun rise over Times Square….
Times Square Arts, Brill Building, 1619 Broadway, Enter through storefront entrance at 1623 Broadway, May 9-17.
