Jesurun’s most recent projects are the web-serial Shadowland (2012–present), Fragments from a Triumphal Arch (2014), and new episodes of his “living film serial” Chang in a Void Moon (1982–present), which effectively started his career in the theatre at the Pyramid Club. He is currently working on a new play with Japanese playwright Takeshi Kawamura.
