Night, Janitor, Carousel

"Surrealistic beauty" - New York Times

Hired to clean the carousel by night, The Janitor combats loneliness through surreal flights of fancy and hallucinatory daydreams in which even the audience may just be a figment of his imagination. Featuring stories, surprises, and songs (accompanied by a calliope organ), this alternately dark and dreamlike piece weaves a spellbinding tale of memory and magic as the carousel whirls in the night.
