In Xanadu is an epic love story about Khubilai Khan attempting to bring his wife back from the underworld after her death. Performed with exquisite shadow puppets, the piece blends Tibetan, Chinese, and Indonesian theater techniques with lap dissolves, montages, Bergmanesque horizons, and a Kurosawa-style portrait of the controlled chaos of war. Directed by Larry Reed, one of the few Americans formally trained in wayang kulit (Balinese shadow puppetry).
Ticket includes admission to the Jim Henson exhibits prior to the show.
