WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Ping Chong returns to La MaMa with Blind Ness: the Irresistible Light of Encounter, a theatrical exploration of Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness, colonialism in the Belgian Congo, and their reverberations into the present--a battle for land, profit and conscience. This new multidisciplinary theater work is written and directed by Ping Chong & Michael Rohd. Using text, movement, performance, shadow puppetry, object theater, and stunning visuals that have been the hallmark of Ping Chong's work for more than 30 years, Blind Ness... intercuts the dramatic saga of Conrad's classic characters, Kurtz and Marlow, with such real-life figures as King Leopold II of Belgium, Roger Casement, Edmund Dene Morel, William Sheppard, Henry Morton Stanley, Patrice Lumumba and other heroes and villains of the 19th and 20th centuries. Schedule: June 18-20, 22-26 at 7:30PM; June 20 & 27 at 2:30PM For tickets to the Benefit performance on Wednesday, July 23, call 212-529-1557.
