    Synopsis: 

    John Jesurun brings his legendary “living film serial” to the Incubator Arts Project this Spring. Starting as a 20-min film in 1979, Chang in a Void Moon grew to be a weekly series at the Pyramid Club from 1982-1983, since then episodes have been performed in Zurich, Berlin, Munich, the Performing Garage, the Kitchen & La Mama. Chang... revolves around the exploits of a businessman by that name and his schemes to defraud the Peters clan, a wealthy family steeped in severe dysfunction and the production still follows a rigorous work schedule of writing a new script, rehearsing and performing all in the span of one-week. Jesurun will bring three brand new episodes to the Incubator this Spring, the first since 2005.

    A Wild Ride Returns. Confused? | ‘Chang in a Void Moon’ at Incubator Arts Project

    Alexis Soloski

    April 1, 2014: It takes a wild, warped and sweeping literary imagination to join Jean-Paul Sartre, Condoleezza Rice, Britney Spears and Wassily Kandinsky in a single script. John Jesurun has one. Since 1982, he has written and directed Chang in a Void Moon, an absurdist serial about a businessman’s efforts to bilk a wealthy family. Last week, after a nine-year hiatus, the first of three new episodes debuted at Incubator Arts Project. (The next runs Friday through Sunday; the third runs April 11 to 13.) For those who haven’t seen the previous 58, Mr. Jesurun offers friendly, rambling curtain speeches. “This may take a little while,” he said apologetically before a performance of Episode 59, borrowing an audience member’s glasses, the better to see his notes. After introducing a host of characters and key events, he told spectators not to worry if they became confused. “You’ll never be able to catch up to it,” he said. “Or you might if you try.”
