we made theater in midtown manhattan. the story of Lucy, a chimp who is adopted by humans. one of us came from greece, the rest from nyc, chicago, philly, santa fe. at first, a potential funder asked us to ‘share our learning with the field’ well, we were out to make theater. not write a book. so we didn’t do it. but when stuff continued to go down, the line was, “well, thats one for the field.”
I’m Alex Suha, from Chicago. In retrospect this show taught me a couple things. I do despise artists statements. But I love learning. And teaching. and sharing. Make no mistake. I speak only for myself, and for no one else, necessarily. I hate artists statements. That’s my only artist statement. But maybe someone else will find some value, or validation, or vindication from what i write here. and, now, I’m back home and I need practice working with wordpress. hence, chimplesson.
