Bliss follows the journey of consciousness after death, during the interval between death and rebirth (bardo), and serves as an allegorical guide for the living.

The journey is theatrically of double nature: the actor living the text of the Bardo and a Butoh dancer manifesting as his supra consciousness on the path of liberation. Original music features a fusion of ambient and accents of sounds and voices from the world, journeying on a wide spectrum from dark to ethereal moods. Projections create the pictorial environment for the journeyer on his path to liberation, immersing the audience in the symbolic dimension of dreams.

It begins when you walk through the doors of the storied Radio City Music Hall. You pause for a moment and stand to admire the Art Deco lobby then make your way to your seat. With a hush, slowly the curtain rises, the music swells and Rockettes appear. Perfect, in unison they dance across the stage, mesmerizing in their precision. And just like that you are transported to another place where reindeer prance and dash through the snow, where Rag Dolls spring to life and Wooden Soldiers march in a fantastic parade. For a time, the hustle and the bustle of the world outside disappears and you are reminded of the true meaning and spirit of the holiday season. Then, in the blink of an eye, the curtain falls and you know Christmas is here.
