From visionary director Robert Lepage comes this hyper-theatrical work that fuses his signature stagecraft and refined visual storytelling into a single unforgettable experience. Jazz legend Miles Davis travels to Europe in 1949 to discover the pleasures of Paris, unlock his creativity, and find his heroine in Juliette Gréco. At the same time, French filmmaker Jean Cocteau embarks on his own opium-fueled journey of discovery to New York. Staged inside a vast cube suspended over the Geary Theater stage, Lepage frames interlocking scenes of two very different journeys into one, revealing insights into the artistic minds of two masters that are both thrilling and heartbreaking.

Running time: TBD
