An original adaptation of the book by Elias Canetti by Rebecca Gorman O’Neill. Directed by Brian Freeland.
A twisted creation developed by The LIDA Project ensemble, playwright Rebecca Gorman, and director Brian Freeland. Manipulations of darkness and light and juxtapositions of ghastly imagery help to re-imagine Canetti’s breakthrough 1935 work about a lone recluse and his infinite library of books.
“A warning against the idea that ‘rigid, dissociated intellectualism and detached, dogmatic scholarship can prevail over evil, chaos, and destruction‘.” – Lisa Hill
September 9 – October 8, 2011
Devised by The LIDA Project
This original LIDA collaborative work inspired by Max Fritch’s The Firebugs and Albert Camus’s The Just, focuses on American pop culture and attitudes a decade after the Al Qaeda attacks on the United States. This theatrical editorial promises to be one of the most irreverent, bombastic, and controversial examinations of American politics and culture to hit Denver audiences in years.
As The LIDA Project enters its 17th season of producing groundbreaking and provocative work, we are proud to announce our 2011-12 season in our new performance facility, The Laundry on Lawrence (2701 Lawrence Street, Denver CO).
