Yellow Brick Road is a bold theatrical adaptation of L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, under the direction of Tomi Tsunoda. This devised theatre project uses Baum’s classic novel as a launch pad for exploring contemporary conversations around climate crisis, displacement, bureaucracy, survival, and dependency. Combining conventions of traditional Japanese performance forms with both found texts and original performance material developed by NYU Abu Dhabi students, Yellow Brick Road aims to fracture this iconic American fairytale and reimagine it as a prism for examining the narratives of global crisis.
Venue: New York University, Abu Dhabi
