ABOUT

Lazarus is an interdisciplinary, imagistic meditation on the resurrected man transplanted from its biblical setting to the surreal, urban purgatory of NYC in the 1970's. It is a deeply personal work about cultural alienation disguised as a biblical story. Lazarus was with the exception of a voice over, sound effects and some music a silent, poetic, nonlinear work. Officially the first theater work Ping Chong created, it established his seminal integration of slide and film projection, puppetry and recorded sound in a theater work.
