World Premiere BOHEMIAN LIGHTS to Play HERE, Begin. 11/7

Live Source - a multidisciplinary performance ensemble - presents the one-of-a-kind; interdisciplinary theatre piece BOHEMIAN LIGHTS - a world-premiere adaptation for the stage of Ramón Valle-Inclán's "Luces de Bohemia," adapted by Live Source with Fernando Gonzalez. Preview performances of BOHEMIAN LIGHTS begin November 7 prior to an official press opening of November 9 at HERE (145 Sixth Avenue) in Manhattan. BOHEMIAN LIGHTS is the story of Max Estrella, a blind poet, on the last night of his life. In the streets of Madrid, the city is self-destructing, the country on the verge of revolution. Through a groundbreaking integration of film with live theatre, BOHEMIAN LIGHTS unravels a dark whirlwind satire of political Spain and her starving artists. This production represents not only the world premiere of a new adaptation of Ramón Valle-Inclán's masterwork "Luces de Bohemia," but also the English-language U.S. premiere, and only the second ever U.S. production in any capacity.

The cast of BOHEMIAN LIGHTS will feature Pedro Almeida, Daniel Capote, Jesse Friedman, Timothy Mele, Jorge Morales-Picó, Gerianne Pérez, and Scheherazade Quiroga.

Directed by Tyler Mercer, the production and design team for BOHEMIAN LIGHTS is José Rivera Jr. (Choreographer), Fernando Gonzalez (Dramaturgy and Supertitles), David Baloche (Film Cinematography), Neil Quillen (Original Music), Jonathan Cottle (Set Designer), Michelle Persoff (Costume Designer), Joanna Emmott (Lighting Designer), Mark Costello (Video), Katie Falter (Stage Manager) and Josh Shain (Production Manager).

This production is a part of SubletSeries@HERE, HERE's curated rental program, which provides artists with subsidized space and equipment, as well as technical support.
