Event Details

The LIDA Project announces its latest original theatrical exploration, Auto da Fé, by Rebecca Gorman O’Neill, based on the once banned book by Elias Canetti. With this, its 41st original production, LIDA continues with a tradition of alternative theatrical madness created by a core theatrical ensemble. Built with a unique multimedia and bombastic style, Auto da Fé is a 'War of the Roses' tale about a lone recluse, his infinite library of books, and a simple housekeeper looking to better her status. A darkly comedic view of human obsession, accompanied by ghastly imagery, all to help to re-imagine Canetti’s breakthrough 1935 work.

The production is directed by LIDA artistic director, Brian Freeland and features performances by Robin Davies, Trina Magness, Dan O'Neill, and Lorenzo Sariñana with the media creations of Steven J. Deidel, Ryan Gaddis, Anna Kaltenbach, and Tommy Sheridan.

“A warning against the idea that ‘rigid, dissociated intellectualism and detached, dogmatic scholarship can prevail over evil, chaos, and destruction‘.” – Lisa Hill 
Auto da Fé, by Rebecca Gorman O'Neill from the book by Elias Canetti.
