Inspired by the paintings of Pieter Bruegel and August Strindberg’s A Dream Play, ELIJAH GREEN follows a divine spirit as it wanders through contemporary life. Despite unremarkable existences, the stories of the characters layer into a portrait of the interconnectivity of all 
humans, with each individual both the center of the world and part of something they cannot comprehend. 

Written and directed by Andrew Ondrejcak  with movement by John Jasperse.
