IDIOT is a hybrid live art-work in response to Dostoevsky’s The Idiot which I developed with Robert Lyons. This wholly new work incorporates original text, live cinematography, gestural choreography, and contemporary music. Our central character, Myshkin, is a “completely beautiful soul” whose brief glimpses of spiritual wonder suggest a transparent, guileless way to live in a corrupt world. Our immersive staging implicates the audience as part of a society more concerned with wealth and power than simple decency and spiritual epiphanies. Developed at NACL, Catskills and New Ohio, NYC. Premiered in May 2016 at HERE. Available to tour.
