Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett of Gorillaz fame are bringing their show, Monkey: Journey to the West, a music-theater collaboration with renowned opera and film director Chen Shi-Zheng, to New York City’s Lincoln Center for the first time this July.

The show is a stage adaptation of the Chinese novel Journey to the West, which dates back to 1592. Equal parts music theater and Hewlett’s insanely brilliant animation, the show also includes Chinese contortionists, martial artists, acrobats, and trapeze. Whether you’re a Gorillaz fan or not, it sounds like it’s going to be awesome.

The images in this post are new ones Hewlett designed of the show’s characters, and you can also watch Albarn and him discuss the show in this video:
