The dance theatre work “Angels of Swedenborg” created by Ping Chong in 1985, will be the opening production of the 50th anniversary season at La MaMa’s Ellen Stewart Theatre. It is a multi-media dance and theatre meditation of a man caught between material and spiritual aspirations, and is inspired by the writings of Emanuel Swedenborg.
It promises to be a “spectacular and physical production that combines dance, theatre, music, multi-media projections, eight angels, two spirits, Swedenborg himself and 600 pounds of feathers.”
The production runs from October 27-November 13, 2011 on Wednesdays-Saturdays at 7:30pm and on Sundays at 2:30pm. Tickets are $30/$25 students and seniors and can be purchased online at www.lamama.org or by calling the box office at 212-475-7710.
