Burning Man Who Sold The World Orlando Fringe says
Burning Man Who Sold the World
– Written and Performed by David Ortolano with Music Composition and Accompaniment by Kendall Perry


Burning Man Who Sold the World is a new dramedy set in a post-truth era of political correctness and the harsh cost of freedom. The Burning Man is a bearer of “questionable news,” and bears
strong political messages about the current American agenda: The world versus America and America versus itself.

The burning man travels beyond death, through the stars and ultimately lands on a distant planet, a dreamlike utopian society, innocent and childlike. They are completely unprepared for the presence of deception, violence and greed. The man soars through human history carrying a Howard Zinn-like torch burning with cultural collisions and political self-destruction all ending in a new solution to all of the world’s problems (sort of).

Storytelling, multi-media, live music, immersive theater and political satire all combined to shed light on the enormous grave the United States of America has dug for itself.

The play was written in 2002 and workshopped in Europe in 2008. The evening is a premiere opening of the show since its inception, a timely birth of a new crosscurrent in the political climate. “the revolution will, in fact, be televised...” Live showings across the USA and Canada from April to October 2017, beginning in Boulder, CO.

world music palette, combined with her own visual, cinematic and minimalistic flavor.
