The LIDA Project will be revisiting its interpretation of the Eugene O’Neill classic, The Hairy Ape for a limited run at HERE Arts Center in NYC this May 1-3 as part of HERE’s hybrid performance series, SubletSeries: Co-op.

LIDA company member Lorenzo Sariñana reprises the role of Yank in this media infused interpretation. Sonia Justl (last seen at LIDA in Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep) will join in the role of O’Neill. The design team includes Schuyler Burks, Steven J. Deidel, Brian Freeland, Alex Hawthorn and Annette Westerby.

The Hairy Ape, first produced in 1922, is the story of a radical laborer trapped in a world controlled by the rich. This classic expressionist work is re-imagined as a one-man / hyper-media performance. Sariñana’s new bi-lingual translation and interpretation brings to the front the issues of immigration, class structure, and industrialism.

This production is a part of SubletSeries@HERE: Co-op, HERE's curated rental program, which provides artists with subsidized space and equipment, as well as technical support.
