Press Release (ePRNews.com) - ASTORIA, N.Y. - Jul 16, 2017 - For the first time in the collective’s history, Long Island City Artists Inc. is housing a full-length play. Dirt [contained] Theatre Company’s production of Garden of Earthly Delights by Fernando Arrabal is an immersive, theme-driven experience that follows an isolated and self-loathing actress through her sadomasochistic struggle between love and art. The production will be coupled with visual arts in an array of mediums curated by LIC-A in the 8,000 sq. foot Plaxall Gallery at 5-25 46th Avenue, LIC. Garden of Delights will run from July 20th to August 27th on Saturday and Sunday from 11am – 6pm.
While the play will be the featured event, the accompanying visual art will be equally noteworthy. Among the artwork being exhibited is Theo Sahos’ 12″ x 16″ work Self-Reflection, an unsettling yet masterful photo depicting moments before crisis. The obscure portrait is of a street performer huddled over a bench, donned in a gargoyle costume, the black shroud and eerily powerful wings dominating the scene. Sahos, an accomplished and well-traveled photographer, is well known in the LIC Artists community for his insightful, diverse work. Taken in Jerusalem prior to a terrorist attack, Self-Reflection deviates from Sahos’ usual commentary on the struggles and joys of New York City urban life and provides a new, haunting perspective that will not fail to surprise. Sahos has announced that the proceeds from the sale of his work will be donated to the 9/11 Memorial Fund.
