A Billion Nights On Earth, a family-friendly, visual theater work by Pew Fellow and theater artist Thaddeus Phillips, returns to FringeArts for a series of special holiday performances. Created in collaboration with visual artist Steven Dufala and composer Juan Gabriel Turbay, the work blends performance art, pop-up storybook design techniques, and a cinematic score and is anchored by a series of bold visual installations, ranging from a 15-foot inflatable whale, to floating tents and an electric train. A Billion Nights on Earth premiered during the 2017 Philadelphia Fringe Festival.
