Direction / Co-Projection Design (with Steven J. Deidel)

This work was a re-interpretation of The LIDA Project’s 2013 production of the Eugene O’Neill classic, The Hairy Ape. Performed for a limited engagement at HERE Arts Center this work builds upon prior visual and projection experiments. This classic expressionist work is now presented as a one-man / hyper-media performance bringing to the front the issues of immigration, class structure, and industrialism.
