Emergence (Off-Broadway, The Pershing Square Signature Center/Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre, 2023) | Playbill




Emergence: Things Are Not As They Seem is a deeply original performance of music, spoken word and psychedelia, led by artist Patrick Olson. He is backed by musicians, singers, dancers, and large-scale immersive video imagery.

Combining thundering music and mind trip monologues, Emergence explores the deepest aspects of the human experience with a riveting dive into the domain between science and art – uplifting, emotionally powerful and revelatory.
