Lazarus 1972 – 2022


About the Production

Lazarus was the first work that Ping Chong created as an independent artist in 1972. The new production will be a deeply personal reflection by Ping Chong on alienation and belonging, the passage of time and the evolution of his artistry.

Lazarus 1972 - 2022 is an interdisciplinary, imagistic meditation on the resurrected man, transplanted from its Biblical setting to the surreal, urban purgatory of contemporary New York City.
