A Billion Nights on Earth

Thaddeus Phillips

United States

When a treasured object goes missing, a parent and child must rely on their creativity – and each other – to get it back. Inspired by the wonder of pop-up books and the magic of Kabuki stagecraft, director Thaddeus Phillips and installation artist Steven Dufala weave a curious tale through space and time that swaps the do’s and dont’s of adulthood for the limitless land of play.

Prepare to be awed by sleight-of-hand stagecraft — and by the limitless possibilities of the imagination.
