    American Utopias

    ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents American Utopias. Controversial monologist Mike Daisey in his newest work paints a distinctly American vision of utopia—how we create public spaces in which we come together to act out our dreams of a better world. Daisey takes us all over the map to pursue the story: from Disney World and its nostalgic theme park perfection, to the drug-fueled anarchic excesses of Burning Man, to Zuccotti Park,...

    ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents American Utopias. Controversial monologist Mike Daisey in his newest work paints a distinctly American vision of utopia—how we create public spaces in which we come together to act out our dreams of a better world. Daisey takes us all over the map to pursue the story: from Disney World and its nostalgic theme park perfection, to the drug-fueled anarchic excesses of Burning Man, to Zuccotti Park, where in the unlikeliest place the Occupy movement was born. Gun-play, giant glittery dildos, raving animatronic presidents and brutal police actions come together to paint the stark landscape of our new American dream.

    ABOUT THE ARTIST:

    Mike Daisey has been called “one of the finest solo performers of his generation” by The New York Times for his groundbreaking monologues which weave together autobiography, gonzo journalism and unscripted performance. Daisey has created over 15 monologues with his collaborator Jean-Michele Gregory, including the 24-hour feat All the Hours in the Day, the critically acclaimed The Last Cargo Cult, and The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs, which he released under an open license and has been downloaded over 100,000 times, staged in more than 40 unique productions around the world and translated into six languages.
